Barbara Hatch, founder of the Veterans Heritage Project, which seeks to connect students with veterans, was the recipient of the Copper Sword Award on Feb. 9. Presented annually, the Copper Sword is the highest honor the AZVHOF awards to a civilian with ties to Arizona who has gone above and beyond the call of duty to help further the initiatives of veterans, patriotism and humanitarianism. It is quite a tribute this year as Arizona celebrates its centennial.

The AVHOF Society consists of individuals who have been inducted into the Arizona Veterans Hall, their immediate family members, and the leadership of the Arizona Department of Veterans Services (ADVS) and the Unified Arizona Veterans (UAV). The Copper Sword is awarded based on the vote of the entire organization.
