Honoring All Who Serve on Veterans Day

Originally meant to celebrate the end of World War I, Veterans Day is now a time for us to honor all who have served and celebrate their contributions and accomplishments to our country.

The Maricopa County Attorney's Office is lucky to have veterans who work in all areas of our office. From attorneys to detectives, our veteran employees continue to show their dedication to public service in the work they do today.

MCAO Detective John Crowe served in the U.S Air Force for 25 years in both active and reserve duty and was stationed in various locations, including Germany, England, Texas, California, Arizona, and Afghanistan. Throughout his career with the Air Force, he is most proud of all he accomplished in service to our country during his deployment to Afghanistan.

After his work with the Air Force, Detective Crowe began his career in law enforcement, something he had wanted to pursue since he was a child. "When I was little, I played Pop Warner Football. I was on a team whose coaches were all police officers. I loved who they were and how they treated us kids, and I greatly respected them for that. As I got older, I wanted to serve as they did."

After almost a decade of working in law enforcement, Detective Crowe joined MCAO close to 15 years ago. "MCAO makes me feel appreciated as a veteran, and everyone here is very supportive of service members and their families." During his time here, he describes his work with the U.S Marshals Fugitive Task Force as the highlight of his law enforcement career. "The 4 ½ years I was assigned to the task force were the most rewarding because they allowed me to help get justice for crime victims and their families."

While Veterans Day honors all those who've served, it is also a day to show our support for military families and their sacrifice. This is the case for Deputy County Attorney (DCA) Treena Kay of MCAO's Homicide Division, whose father was in the military. "My father was in the Army for 20 years. He served three tours in Vietnam and was awarded a Purple Heart and Bronze Star."

For both of our employees, Veterans Day holds a special meaning.

For Detective Crowe, Veterans Day serves as a time of reflection. "Veterans Day makes me feel proud of all I did to serve my country, and it also makes me proud for my brothers and sisters in uniform for their sacrifices, especially those who gave the ultimate sacrifice in service to our nation. Therefore, when I am recognized on Veterans Day, I am also standing for all those who served and are unable to be here."

For DCA Treena Kay, Veterans Day is about recognizing all who have served. "When I think of Veteran's Day, I think of when my father was alive. He occasionally commented that he didn't feel like the nation supported the vets who served in Vietnam. Volunteering for the Veteran's Day Parade is one way I show Vietnam Vets and others who have served our country that this nation is very thankful for their service."

We are thankful to all our veterans who gave up so much to be a part of something bigger than themselves. We are especially grateful to those who decided to continue serving the public at MCAO.
