STATE CAPITOL, PHOENIX – Rep. Jonathan Larkin, D-Glendale (District 30), received the Copper Shield Award from the Unified Arizona Veterans on Feb. 12 at the Arizona Veterans Hall of Fame Society Gala, for his commitment to serving Arizona’s veterans.

“I am honored to accept such a prestigious award on behalf of all the veterans serving at the Arizona Legislature,” Larkin said. “Together, we formed the Arizona Veterans Caucus, a bipartisan group of veteran legislators focused on finding more ways to serve those who have served our country.”

Unified Arizona Veterans was established more than 30 years ago to collectively promote veteran-related affairs. Now including 45 Veteran Service Organizations, UAV continues to actively propose, support and endorse legislation, administrative or other actions which further the general welfare and well-being of all Arizona veterans.

The Copper Shield Award is presented annually by UAV to an elected official who has made significant contributions to the veteran community. This award, along with the Copper Eagle Award and the Copper Sword Award, are typically given at the Arizona Veterans Hall of Fame Society Gala.
