2017 Patriot Tour 

The Patriot Tour Through Arizona

We welcome all street legal vehicles to participate in the Patriot Tour. We ask for a minimum $5.00 donation to escort and honor the flag.

We are a 501C3 and a part of a nationwide effort to raise money for wounded veterans  who have served from 1965, and their families. 

All money raised in Arizona will stay in Arizona and go directly to the needs of our wounded veterans through the Nation of Patriots.

Please join us as we Celebrate the Service to our Country of All Veterans, and support those who need our help.

​​The Nation of Patriots  Arizona Tour
July 13 - 15, 2017

The Patriot Tour is an annual ride by the Nation of Patriots, with 1 flag that travels 48 states in 100 days. Arizona has participated in this event since 2010 when 3 riders made the trek across the state on I 40 raising money for our wounded veterans.

Fast forward to 2017 and the ride has grown to over 100 riders from all over Arizona, joined by riders from Nevada and New Mexico. We ride to support our veterans with some established stops on our route - Winslow Az, Kingman Az, Williams Az and this year we add Flagstaff Az. 

2017 we add a detour to the route with a trip the the Grand Canyon and a fly over of the flag by helicopter as part of the festivities.

Details of the Arizona tour are on the Events page of this site and we will provide updates as they occur on our Facebook page and website. 

Join us for a memorable ride in 2017 and support the veterans of our state.....you will be glad you did.

2016 Success!!!

Thank you to the supporters who sponsored our events, who trusted us to live up to our committment; to the riders who who joined in our state wide ride; to the folks who cheered us on, and the support from the Elks, Police Departments, Cities and communities: we were able to raise over $11,000! All of this was returned to our vets in need in Arizona.

UPDATE: Due to the number of vets identified this year that needed assistance, we were given an additional $2000.00 by National for distribution. As of December 31, 2016 Arizona NOP was able to help Vets in Arizona by paying $13,200 to help in their challenged time.   THANK YOU ARIZONA!!!!!

UPDATE: 2017We will be seeking both donors and recipients in the southern Arizona areas including Phoenix and Tucson. If you are interested, or know of anyone in need, please submit your information via the fields below or reach out to our regional commanders for details!
