Peoria Chamber of Commerce’s Military Affairs Committee members, assisted by local sponsors, spearheaded the Armed Forces Day Hero’s Flag Walk, May 15, at Rio Vista Community Park, 8866 W. Thunderbird Road.
The event honored military members serving the nation and those veterans who promote freedom around the world. Jeff Turney, military affairs committee chair, said he’s proud to be part of the team that put this event together.
“Having Congresswoman Lesko, Mayor Carlat, former Mayor Barrett, Councilmember Patena, and the citizens of Peoria attend the event shows our troops we care about them and honor their sacrifices,” Mr. Turney said. “I look forward to seeing the next event this committee puts together and welcome all the citizens of Peoria and the West Valley communities to join us as we thank our military, our veterans, and all the businesses and citizens that support our troops.”
