You Can Help Our Veterans

If you would like to make a meaningful difference in the lives of local veterans in need, there is no better way than to support your local American Legion Veterans Service Organization. “The American Legion Oro Valley Post 132 has been a steadfast ray of hope to our local, less fortunate veterans for years.” These are words recently spoken by the chairman of the Tucson Veterans Serving Veterans Alliance. We are making a difference.

As a nonprofit veterans service organization without a facility of our own, fundraising is the only way in which we are able to fund our care and assistance programs, which have been recognized and honored by military organizations and other veterans groups. The funding of our award-winning programs is dependent entirely on the generosity of the community.

Charity Golf Tournament Aug. 27

To help us carry on our mission of hope, we are sponsoring our 13th annual charity golf tournament on Saturday, Aug. 27, at the SaddleBrooke MountainView Golf Club. The per golfer fee is $90 and includes lunch, super raffle prizes, contest holes, and lots of fun, all for a worthy cause. One hundred percent of the proceeds stay local, and will be used to provide care and assistance to homeless and other veterans in need, and to the families of the deployed soldiers of our “adopted” Arizona National Guard and Reserve Units, our citizen soldiers. Please help us to help them.

The point of contact is Steve Didio at 520-332-9481 or [email protected]. For a copy of the flier, contact Steve or go to our website at
