Arizona local Veterans share their stories – Filmed by City of Chandler

Published

on

We’re proud to honor all Veterans of the U.S. Armed Forces and this Memorial Day, we’d like to introduce a few of Chandler’s own.

Listen in as local Veterans share their stories. Hear from Lew Bradley, who joined the U.S. Marine Corps in 1950 at the age of 17; Bill Berry, who enlisted in the U.S. Army in 1966 and fought in the Vietnam War; and Ashley McWhirt, who has been serving in the Marines for 12 years – both active duty and reserves. She currently works as a police records clerk with the Chandler Police Department

Also featured are two exhibits currently on display at the Chandler Museum.


• The “A Million Acts of Kindness” exhibit, which showcases the work of The Salvation Army USA and explores the services provided to the troops and how Salvation Army volunteers provided aid on the home front. 
• The “Chandler Veterans: DUTY” exhibit, which is a traveling banner exhibit that pays tribute to Veterans from the Chandler community who have served in every branch of the military. 

The video also includes a musical performance by Blaine Long and messages from Mayor Kevin Hartke and City Council. 

Learn more about those featured in the video, the museum exhibits and how Chandler Veterans can share their story at chandleraz.gov/VeteransAppreciation.

Brought to you by City of Chandler’s Diversity Office and the Chandler Museum, in partnership with the Salvation Army. Special thanks to Bashas’ Supermarkets and The Salvation Army Chandler Corps.

A Time for Choosing

We must listen to this “Ronald Reagan – A time for choosing · Last Stand on Earth” speech and fight for those values. Fight for democracy. Fight to preserve freedom. Be a strong-willed American and do what Ronald Reagan would do. He knew that we are the last stand of freedom. So should you.
