On April 20th and 21st, the Arizona Coalition for Military Families hosted the 2016 Statewide Symposium in Support of Service Members, Veterans & Their Families for 500 persons statewide. The goal of the symposium was to help attendees increase their knowledge, skills and abilities for serving and supporting the military, veteran and family population. To accomplish this goal, the symposium had several breakout sessions, such as a wounded warrior and family members panel; navigating the military to civilian workplace transition; women in the military; and about 20 other interesting sessions over a two-day period.
During the symposium, Debbie Moak, Director of the Governor's Office of Youth, Faith and Family (GOYFF), and Tonya Hamilton, Director of Substance Abuse Prevention of GOYFF, were presented with a plaque for their support of Arizona's service members, veterans and their families. The award was presented by Thomas Winkler, the Arizona Coalition for Military Families Director of Community Engagement, and Wanda Wright, Director of the Arizona Department of Veterans' Services.
