Scottsdale Salutes

The City of Scottsdale proudly honors those in our community who have served, and continue to serve, in the armed forces of the United States. Our veterans, those on active duty, and members of the National Guard and reserves are truly valued members of Scottsdale – we proudly salute them!

The city’s Veterans Advisory Commission has initiated the Scottsdale Salutes program to publicly thank those who have worn the uniform – banners featuring veterans and those in military service will fly from street light poles in Old Town Scottsdale each November.

To nominate a veteran, active duty or guard/reserve member who lives (or lived) in Scottsdale, or is from Scottsdale, please use the nomination form below.
