Military Assistant Mission (MAM) launched Caring for Hero Caregivers, a nomination program inviting individuals across Arizona to nominate a caregiver of a senior U.S. military veteran, injured discharged or active duty service member in need of a much-needed day off. The contest awards two deserving hero caregivers a month with a day of respite care from the local trusted home-care provider, Comfort Keepers.

"We invite everyone to nominate the amazing hero caregiver in their life who deserves to be recognized – whether it is a colleague, close friend or a family member," said Marc Boehm executive director at MAM. "Giving back to our service men and women is extremely important to MAM, so we're truly excited to invite the community to be a part of our Caring for Hero Caregivers campaign."
During this Caring for Hero Caregivers campaign, Comfort Keepers will award two deserving caregivers from all nominations received every month beginning in May and running through the end of the year to give them a much-needed break.
"I am humbled every day by the work MAM does to support Arizona service men and women," said Phil Senff, president and owner of Comfort Keepers in Phoenix. "Having the opportunity to give back to those who have sacrificed for our country brings so much joy to our team of caregivers."
Since inception, Military Assistance Mission has provided support and morale aid to current Arizona and active duty military, their families and post 9/11 Purple Heart recipients.
"Our MAM board of directors, staff and volunteers work hard every day to give back just a fraction of what our service men and women have given and sacrificed for our freedoms," explains Boehm. "The ability to give back, with the help of great supporters like Comfort Keepers, to those who care for our heroes, gives us great satisfaction. In our eyes, those caregivers are heroes too!"
