2015 marks the 70 year anniversary of the end of World War II. The Florida Department of State is drawing attention to this important anniversary with the campaign Victory Florida, which honors and celebrates the heroes and heroines of World War II while educating Floridians about the important role Florida played in training for the battlefield and on the home front during the war.  

 The Victory Florida campaign is a great way to honor and celebrate World War II veterans in your county, while educating Floridians about the numerous historic sites, museums, memorials and resources available statewide. 

Florida’s 67 counties can get involved by planning events or activities that recognize local veterans while highlighting local history and cultural heritage.  

More information and tools, such as a template proclamation, can be found on the website VivaFlorida.org/Victory. Please take a moment to explore the ways to leverage available resources and participate in this statewide promotion. Contact Florida500Info@dos.myflorida.com for more information.
