CHANDLER, Ariz. – Calling all Chandler veterans! The City is gearing up for its second annual Chandler Path of Honor. Located along the lake at Veterans Oasis Park, 4050 E. Chandler Heights Road, the path will feature large signs (during the month of November) that pay tribute to Chandler veterans who have honorably served in the U.S. Military.

The local veterans that will be featured along the Path of Honor will be selected from Chandler’s Veterans Database and the Chandler Museum’s existing collection. If you are a veteran and would like to share your story, or if you would like to share the story of a family member who served, visit Chandler Veterans Database and complete the online form. The information shared will help continue to tell the stories of Chandler’s veterans. To be considered for this year’s Path of Honor, submissions must be completed by Thursday, Sept. 30.

The Museum also welcomes donations of photographs and objects which help to tell our veterans’ stories. Digital photographs of the veteran during his or her service can be submitted using the form at Chandler Veterans Database. To donate original photographs, scrapbooks, uniforms or other items that help document a veteran’s story, please contact Chandler Museum Collections Coordinator, Nate Meyers, at 480-782-2877.

For more information about the Path of Honor, residents also can connect with Rori Minor with the City’s Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Division at 480-782-4329.
