Sheriff Napier Believes Memorial Vital to Community
Pima County Sheriff Mark D. Napier keenly understands the sacrifices and contributions made by our veterans and first responders. A law enforcement officer for 30 years with service in the U.S. Army Reserve, Napier believes the Southern Arizona Veterans and First Responders Living Memorial is vital to our community.

“The Memorial sends a clear message of support and acknowledgement of our veterans and first responders, people who have given so much so we can live free and in safety,” he says. “Combining both into a Living Memorial is a very special project. It will be a place of learning and reflection that will draw people from across the country to our community. Best of all, it will be located in my beloved hometown of Oro Valley.”

With tremendous support from people like Sheriff Napier, who wear a uniform and serve our country, and from all of us, working together we will raise the private funds needed to bring the Living Memorial to completion.  Visit our website to learn more.
