Peoria Veterans Day Commemorative Events
and Take Me Home Huey Sculpture Exhibition

Veterans Day Location MapThursday-Saturday, November 5-7, 2015
Rio Vista Recreation Center, 8866 W. Thunderbird Rd.
adjacent to Peoria’s Veterans Memorial Wall

As the nation embraces the ongoing 50th Anniversary Commemoration of the Vietnam War, Arizonians will get a first glimpse of one artist’s effort to honor an icon of that era. The City of Peoria is proud to host the Inaugural Exhibition of Take Me Home Huey, created by Artist Steve Maloney, as a central theme of this year’s 2015 Veterans Day events scheduled November 5 to 7 inside Peoria’s Rio Vista Park.

The heart of the project is a contemporary sculpture repurposed from a boneyard Huey helicopter #174, brought down with two casualties in February 1969 during a Medevac mission in Vietnam. Its mission is significant: to honor Vietnam veterans, inspire conversation, promote healing, and help raise awareness for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Maloney has partnered with Light Horse Legacy, Inc. (LHL) a Peoria based 501(c) 3 non-profit organization and USA Vietnam War Commemorative Partner focused on supporting veterans with PTSD. LHL acquired, re-skinned, restored and delivered the aircraft to the artist to transform it into art for healing. Importantly, Dave Barron, LHL founder researched Huey #174 and reunited surviving soldiers and families connected to the aircraft.

The sculpture will be located in the park adjacent to the Veterans Memorial Wall and available for viewing throughout the weekend with several events planned. For the remainder of the Arizona Exhibits, the sculpture will be featured in the Phoenix Veterans Day Parade on Wednesday, November 11 beginning at 11 a.m. in downtown Phoenix. Friday, November 13 through January 2016 Take Me Home Huey will begin an extended exhibition at the Airbase Arizona Museum of the Commemorative Air Force (CAF) in Mesa, AZ.

Do you have an old American flag?  

The Peoria Fire Department is now offering a solution to residents while partnering to honor our Veterans.  This new program that is lead by Retired Peoria Fire Captain John Davirro will collect flags from fire stations and deliver them to Heritage Funeral Home.  There the flags will be used to cover the caskets of Veterans who are being cremated, making sure both the Veteran and the flag are properly honored.

Drop-off boxes are located just inside the front lobby doors of the stations and will be available to the public everyday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.

 Remember a Veteran, Thank a Veteran
