The Villages, Florida has one of the highest concentrations of veterans of any community in the country and the community shows its support for Memorial Day and Veterans Day. Take a ride around the community and you will see block after block lined with small curb side flags in honor of the holidays. One of my neighbors’ lines both sides of the street and the island in our cul-de-sac with flags. Other neighboring streets will do their front yards and driveways.
Having the largest American Legion Post in the world brings even more activities and remembrance to both Memorial Day and Veterans Day. On November 11th, 1998, The Veterans Memorial Park of The Villages was dedicated. It was a joint effort by the residents and the developer to set aside an area to build a monument and an area to honor the fallen.
There will be no golf cart parades or street fairs for this holiday, just the respect this holiday deserves!
