The American Legion Department of Arizona is conducting a Veterans Command Center (VCCC) at Post 26 in Mesa on July 24, the first of what the department said will be several similar centers.

Department officials said that with the success of the Legion’s Veterans Crisis Command Center conducted in Phoenix in June, the department learned the great benefit of pulling together resources from the Department of Veterans Affairs and other community providers to reach out to Arizona veterans with help for their needs.





“We’re going to keep building on the collaboration that we enjoyed with (VA) during the Veterans Crisis Command Center in June,” Arizona Department Commander Andy Jaime said.

The Mesa center will be open from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. at Post 26, 505 W 2nd Ave. VA outreach teams and other community providers will be available on site.The contact number for the post event is (480) 213-6277.
