Southern Arizona Veterans and First Responders Living Memorial is honored to have Kay Williams as a member of its executive board.
Kay’s involvement in honoring and celebrating our veterans is personal. Her father lost part of his foot during his service in World War II in the European theater. Her brother came home from the Vietnam conflict with post-traumatic stress, having seen his two closest friends killed. Her nephew is permanently disabled from the effects of an IED explosion in Afghanistan.
“When you see the impact on our veterans, first responders and their families, you want to ensure there is a permanent place of honor and recognition for them, their service and sacrifice,” says Kay, pictured above on the left with board member Curt Stowell. “Our military, our veterans and our first responders stood or continue to stand watch, protect us, act when necessary, and always serve. They deserve our recognition and gratitude. This memorial serves as a singular place for generations to come to know the sacrifice that our freedom and security demanded from those who serve and continue to serve.”
