Established on 17 July 1967 in Phoenix, Arizona, as a 501c(3) non-profit organization, the Arizona Territorial Chapter 7202 of the Association of the United States Army (AUSA) works in support of AUSA national initiatives to advance community awareness and serve as a voice for our Active, Army Guard & US Army Reserve members, retirees, DA Civilians and their families. We strive to educate and promote local understating of Army issues. We also emphasize the importance of maintaining a strong and ready military force for national security. Our Chapter’s area of influence includes all of Maricopa Country and the areas adjacent to it (i.e. Pinal, Gila, Graham, Greenlee, Apache, Navajo, Coconino, Yavapai, Mohave, La Paz and Yuma counties).
Our primary local service programs include deployment, remobilization and reintegration support to our Active, Reserve and National Guard Soldiers, and their families, and veterans/retirees. Additionally, we give special attention to our local recruiting and accession commands including the Phoenix Recruiting Battalion, as well as, the Arizona State University (ASU), Grand Canyon University (GCU), Northern Arizona University (NAU) and Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University (ERAU) ROTC, and local JROTC programs.
