Florida Veteran Hall of Fame Inductees


AMVETS POST 1776 WALL OF HONOR

The State of Florida established in 2011 legislation to recognize and honor those military veterans who, through their works and lives during or after military service, have made a significant contribution to the State of Florida through civic, business, public service or other pursuits. Inductees are recommended annually by the Florida Veteran’s Hall of Fame Council based upon public nominations and approved by the Governor and Cabinet.
