Steel Horse Chapter

Buckeye, Arizona

CVMA® AZ 32-5 was founded in Buckeye, Arizona, on May 23, 2016. The Chapter was originally a detachment of AZ 32-1 in Phoenix before breaking away to give combat veterans in the West Valley a place to call home.

Originally known as the "Valley of the Sun" Chapter, AZ 32-5 changed its name to the "Steel Horse" Chapter in 2024 to reflect the rugged landscapes and western roots of the greater Buckeye area.

Chapter 32-5 has members from across the West Valley including Avondale, Buckeye, El Mirage, Glendale, Goodyear, Laveen, Litchfield Park, Peoria, Sun City, Surprise, Tolleson, Tonopah, Waddell, and Wickenberg.
