Veterans Awareness Week Proclaimed
There are more than 12,000 veterans that call Flagler County home. Of that number some 2,500 are WWII veterans. Flagler County Veterans organization members continue to serve their community by sponsoring programs and supporting legislation to benefit veterans and others. The Flagler County Commission created the Veterans Advisory Council made up of the representatives of area veterans organizations to coordinate veteran events, discuss issues that affect veterans and represent veteran interests in the community. In honor of the County’s veterans, the Flagler County Commission proclaimed the week of November 9 as Flagler County Veterans Awareness Week. .
