FAC was honored and humbled last week to receive a Commendation from the Florida Department of Veterans Affairs (FDVA) for “exceptionally meritorious service and outstanding contributions in support of Florida’s 1.6 million veterans and their families.” Colonel Mike Prendergast, Executive Director of the FDVA visited FAC headquarters to present commendation certificates to the Association, President Bryan Desloge, and FAC staff.

The commendations were in recognition of the work done – and funds raised – as a result of the silent auction that was held during the 2013 Annual Conference and Educational Exposition. FAC’s corporate partners and exhibitors provided an incredible amount of support in making the auction a success. Over $6,000 was raised to support the work of the Florida Veterans Foundation.
