Veterans Events in Orlando – March/April 2021

With over 1.5 million veterans living in the state of Florida, it’s easy to see why the Sunshine State has become known as one of the most Veteran friendly states in the US.  A great climate, affordable real estate, and a relaxing way of life continue to attract Veterans who are looking to relocate or simply stay in the state they know and love. A great proportion of these lives and work in Central Florida so it is little wonder that there are many new and exciting ways for Veterans to get involved in the local community.
