WHO WE ARE
We are committed to the Individual Veteran XPerience
At E3 IVXP, we understand. Founded by Brian Minzey, a veteran of both the Army and Navy, Brian and his team know that to assist America's veterans takes desire, compassion, and determination.
E3 IVXP is firmly committed to becoming Arizona's leading Veteran support organization by implementing world-class care and career planning for our veterans.
We believe our veterans fought and placed their lives on the line for all of us, and now, we should provide our best to ease their transition to civilian life.
Veterans do not need a handout but assistance, guidance, and support.
Equally important, the people within E3 IVXP believe that our veterans' health and success in civilian life should equal their success in defending this nation!
We combine the strength, courage, and integrity of each veteran with a sense of urgency to integrate these qualities into the civilian workforce successfully.
Please join us by supporting our efforts to make a measurable difference in the lives of our veterans. Through all endeavors, we will display the conviction of our beliefs.
