As a way to show our appreciation, the City is establishing "Operation Welcome Home Chandler" to formally honor military men and women who have served our country upon their return from active duty away from home within the last three years or leaving soon.
 
The Chandler City Council will recognize and thank each individual at a formal council meeting. Councilmember Nora Ellen proposed the creation of such program, following the lead of a similar initiative first launched in Danville, California, as well as neighboring communities, such as Gilbert, Arizona.
 
This is where we need your help. Join us in recognizing brave military men and women in Chandler. Please use the form below to nominate a person who has returned from military service or leaving soon and deserving of such recognition.
