Grounded in Military Tradition
At first glance, you’ll notice the veteran spirit runs deep in Southwest Florida. Military-friendly communities throughout the region celebrate former service members with discounts at museums, restaurants and attractions — a half-scale replica of Washington D.C.’s Vietnam Memorial Wall even stretches through Laishley Park in Florida’s Purple Heart-designated city, Punta Gorda.
Dig a little deeper and you’ll see that veteran support is fundamental to this region’s character. There is an array of programs to help separated veteran job seekers, entrepreneurs and business owners. Whether you’re recently separated military personnel or a retired vet, Southwest Florida offers services for you and your family to thrive in the region.
