THE History

Navy veteran Mark Field founded National Veterans Magazine in 2014 to honor and support the deserving community of active-duty military, veterans, law enforcement and first-responders. National Veterans Magazine was the recipient of a Media of the Year award and two proclamations from the Arizona Legislature and was named Veteran Champion of Small Business by the U.S. of Small Business Administration. Mark was inducted into the Arizona Veterans Hall of Fame in 2017.

Army veteran and former U.S. Congressman Frank D. Riggs acquired the publication in 2022 after Field’s unexpected passing. Frank sought counsel from the owners of InMaricopa, who were so excited about the opportunity to serve the veteran community they partnered with Frank to help bring his vision to life. The new team reinvented the dormant National Veterans Magazine, which became Arizona Veterans Magazine and is set to publish its inaugural issue in early 2024.

Sadly, Frank passed away in late 2023. AVM is excited to produce a publication in which all Arizona veterans will find value, and of which Mark and Frank will be proud.
