Oct. 26, the Arizona Veterans Hall of Fame inducted its Class of 2018 honorees at a ceremony at Talking Stick Resort in Scottsdale.
One of the 28 inductees this year was Charles “Chuck” Byers Jr., Military and Veterans Community Liaison for Congresswoman Debbie Lesko (AZ-08).
“Chuck has been an advocate for veterans across the nation since his service in the United States Army,” Lesko said. “Now, he works tirelessly on behalf of veterans and their families in the Eighth Congressional District. Here in Arizona, Chuck is well-known in the community and is a member of numerous veterans’ organizations. I thank Chuck and the other 27 inductees for their service and sacrifice to our nation and congratulate them on this extraordinary achievement.”
Born in Houston, Texas in 1948, Byers served in the U.S. Army for six years, including service as a combat medic in Vietnam. Byers is a lifetime member of Veterans of Foreign Wars, Military Order of the Purple Heart, and Vietnam Veterans of America (VVA). He serves as the Second Vice President for the State Council of Arizona Vietnam Veterans of America and volunteers as the Chief Veterans Service Officer for Arizona, where he trains veterans. As a National Board Member of VVA, Byers educates members on Veterans Affairs programs and legislation written to help veterans.
