Vietnam War Monuments - Florida

"The willingness with which our young people are likely to serve in any war, no matter how justified, shall be directly proportional to how they perceive veterans of earlier wars were treated and appreciated by our nation." -- George Washington

As of 2012, it was estimated that 1.6 million veterans resided in Florida. The Florida Department of Veteran Affairs estimates that there are over 498,000 Vietnam Veterans now residing in Florida.. The Virtual Wall lists 1,954 Floridians that died in Vietnam (Click Here) for the list.

Floridians have always stepped forward to serve our nation. And the Vietnam War was no exception.

This page is about how the State of Florida and it's communities have remembered those veterans. In some cases, Monuments or Memorials have been erected locally with the names of local men and women that died during the Vietnam War. Other Memorials have been erected for all those who served.

As a special note, the Florida chapters of Vietnam Veterans of America are committed to finding a photo of every Floridian that died during the Vietnam War. CLICK HERE for more information and how you can help.

This page will be a work in progress for some time to come. We continue to find monuments, memorials and markers throughout the State of Florida erected to honor those that served during the Vietnam War. If your community has a Vietnam monument or memorial that we have not included, please send information on the Monument or Memorial to webmaster@vvafsc.org.
