The State of Florida is looking to honor military veterans who have made significant contributions to the state through civic, business, public service or other pursuits.
The Florida Veterans Hall of Fame is not a military hall of fame. Nominees will be considered for their contributions to the community of Florida and civilian accomplishments made during or after their military service.
