Veterans helping veterans and their families Awareness makes a world of difference

If you are a veteran needing help at any time, for any emergency, call Rally Point Arizona, and talk to a veteran who understands.

Help a veteran by being a friend, by making contact, by caring. It’s easy to do, and it works wonders. Because sometimes, it’s the little things that can make a big difference.
