Chapter Fort Huachuca & Cochise County Announcement


Dear Local Warrant Officers,

As the community recovers from COVID-19 restrictions the US Army Arizona Silver Chapter Warrant Officer Association will return to fully supporting the Fort Huachuca and Cochise County region to include those active, National Guard, Reserve and retired Warrant Officers. We are looking not only for your support, but for your awareness of the Chapter’s past, present and future activities.

The Chapter has around 70-75 members on the membership rolls. None of our members were hospitalized for COVID-19 and we continue to pray this will remain the case. Many of our members as one would expect have followed restrictions and are also looking to a return to normalcy. As participants in community assistance programs with Veterans in destress the Chapter is always willing to aid those in need. Please communicate directly with the Executive Committee members or through the following local agencies:
Arizona or Sierra Vista VA offices (dvs.az.gov)
Arizona Department of Veterans’ Services (www.tucson.va.gov/locations/SierraVista.asp)
Disabled American Veterans (www.dav.org)
American Legion (www.legion.org)
Veterans of Foreign Wars (vfw.org)
United Veterans Council (UVC)
Cochise Serving Veterans (CSV) – supports the Veterans Resource Fair
Social Services Support
Joint Service Club of Greater Sierra Vista

The chapter was forced to cancel the Annual Golf Tournament and Pancake Breakfast. We are hopeful with a return to normalcy these events will return in 2021 and we will continue to keep members informed. These two events are the Chapter’s main fund-raising means to support the following community and WO actions:
Annual Chapter scholarships to dependents of active, National Guard, Reserve and retired Warrant Officers.
Leadership awarded for Buena High School and Tombstone High School JRTOC cadets.
Support to local community organizations and agencies identified above.
Aid to disabled or homeless veterans in the local community

While the Chapter members along with many of the visiting or stationed WOs are busy, the AZ Silver Chapter needs your support with participation in events such as carrying the Chapter flag during Memorial Day and other local events. And when possible in support of organizing events and activities. While we welcome your membership, we are also pleased to see all area WOs participate in activities and events. Please monitor the Chapter’s page on for further announcements or email the following directly:
Chapter President - [email protected]
Chapter Vice President - [email protected]
Chapter page - [email protected]


Lastly, the Warrant Officer Association will be holding the annual membership 21-23 October 2020 virtually. The AZ Silver Chapter and others will participate and will provide key information.

Department of Arizona Veterans of Foreign Wars Auxiliary

CALL TO ACTION HB 2281

This bill would limit the number of events any nonmember of any military club or organization such as the VFW, DAV, or American Legion could attend. It specifically limits events such as bingo games and nonmember recruitment events, where nonmembers are allowed to purchase alcohol, up to 12 events per year for each of those types of events.

"We would ask why the change to Section 6, Section 4-205 paragraph B covering who can sell and serve alcohol as it relates to Bingo operations. Our Posts operate their Bingo under the Arizona Department of Revenue, within the statutes 5-204 and 42-105. Bingo is often the major source of funding for many of our Post’s charitable operations. We pay taxes on gross income received to the Dept of Revenue. Will this change to 4-205 limit our bingo to only 12 times a year as indicated? This change could, in fact cause a serious financial impact on many of our Posts if passed. "

Tomorrow at 2:00 PM, the House Commerce Committee, will hear HB 2281 the Liquor Omnibus bill. The Committee will meet in Room HH3. I would ask if you live in the Phoenix area to try to attend the hearing.

If you have a Request to Speak account, please log on and oppose this bill. Link to Request to Speak: https://www.azleg.gov/

I have also attached a list of the members of the Committee on Commerce with their contact information.

Please take action today or before the hearing tomorrow at 2:00 PM
