2019 Storyteller Award Recipient

Veterans Heritage Project is proud to recognize The Honorable Rick Romley with our inaugural “Storyteller Award”. Rick served four elected terms as the Maricopa County Attorney [1989-2004] and was appointed as interim Maricopa County Attorney in 2010.  Since leaving office, Rick started his own legal consulting firm and has served as a Judge in our Veterans Court since 2016.

Rick joined the United States Marine Corps as a youth and served as a combat infantry squad leader in Vietnam until wounded in 1969. Rick received numerous commendations, including the Purple Heart. In 2001, Rick received two additional National Awards for his service in defense of our country: LIFE’s Presidential Unsung Hero Award and America’s Outstanding Disabled American Veteran of the Year. Rick was inducted into the Arizona Veterans Hall of Fame in 2007.

Rick’s service story was captured by Veterans Heritage Project (VHP) student Patrick Ward in the 2009 edition of Since You Asked.TM  He shared lessons of inner strength and a heavy belief in “Service before Self,” which he continues to demonstrate through a commitment to fellow veterans and to creating awareness for VHP’s mission.
