After the Phoenix Veterans Day Parade – the third largest in the country – join tens of thousands of participants and spectators at the Salute to Veterans music and comedy festival at Steele Indian School Park. HeroZona and Checkered Flag Run Foundation founder Alan “AP” Powell is one of the appointed grand marshals. The mainstay parade ends around 1 p.m., after which visitors are encouraged to catch a free performance by American Hitmen – a band of Marine Corps Combat Veterans – and the GIs of Comedy – nearly a dozen warrior comedians who have served in the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps. One of Arizona’s well-known veterans, Sen. John McCain, who served in the U.S. Navy, will also be honored with a Lifetime Service Award.

Founded by Alan “AP” Powell, HeroZona is a week-long Veterans Day engagement that provides Arizona’s 500,000-plus veterans a multi-day networking event.
