On Monday, Governor Ron DeSantis issued a proclamation recognizing March 25th, 2019 as Medal of Honor Day in Florida. The Medal of Honor is the highest award for valor in action against an enemy force that an individual serving in the Armed Forces of the United States can receive.
“I am proud to sign this proclamation on Medal of Honor Day in Florida as Governor of the most veteran-friendly state in the nation,” said Governor DeSantis. “This is a well-deserved recognition honoring the many who have distinguished themselves by serving our country with bravery and gallantry. We can never thank them enough.”
Florida annually recognizes March 25th as Medal of Honor Day. To commemorate this day public officials, schools, private organizations and all Floridians are called upon to honor recipients of the Congressional Medal of Honor for their bravery and efforts in defending the United States.
