The Central Florida Veterans Memorial Park honors those who left our community and never returned and is a place of healing for their family and friends.
The Memorial is located adjacent to the new VA Medical Center (VAMC) overlooking a tranquil lake and a short walk to the campus chapel, nursing home and assisted living facility. It truly is a special place to both remember the names of Central Floridians who died while serving our country and to mourn our losses. This memorial is also a peaceful place for patients, families, and friends to heal, pray, relax, reflect and connect with their loved ones.
It honors approximately 1,100 veterans from Orange, Lake, Brevard, Osceola, Seminole, and Volusia counties who made the ultimate sacrifice and never returned. The six counties located in Central Florida are home to 400,000 veterans, and there is more former military personnel over 65 years of age living in our community than in any other place in the United States. Also there are more veterans that are over 50 percent disabled living in Central Florida than any other place in the United States or COL DeLloyd Voorhees, USA (Ret), President, at 407-620-1158.. Central Florida is the No. 1 destination for combat veterans, and the VA Medical Center offers more services than any other military medical facility, especially for women, and attracts veterans from across the country.
This was a major project involving approximately $3 million dollars in combined construction costs and an endowment for maintenance of the Memorial Park. The Memorial Dedication Ceremony was held on November 11, 2013.
Please help us honor those who left our community and never returned. The Endowment Fund was established for continued maintenance of the Memorial and will continue to be funded by Donors.
