Florida veterans honored with ‘Governor’s Veterans Service Award’


Gov. Rick Scott presented the Governor’s Veterans Service Award to 42 Florida veterans during a Cabinet meeting Thursday, honoring their service to the Sunshine State and the nation.

“It is an honor to thank these veterans for their hard work and sacrifice to our state and nation,” Scott said in a statement. “The freedoms and opportunities that we enjoy as Americans were paid for by the service and sacrifice of our brave veterans. These heroes have made countless sacrifices for Florida’s families and we must take every opportunity possible to thank them and tell them that we honor and appreciate their service.”

Seven “veterans-turned-teachers” and 35 members of the Florida National Guard received the award, which honors Floridians who have served in the U.S. military.

“The front of the medal depicts the Great Seal of the State of Florida. The back of the medal displays the five seals representing the five branches of U.S. Military with an inscription that reads ‘Honoring Those Who Served,’” the statement said.
