Meet the Military Veteran Legislators

2021 – 2022 Florida Legislature Series

 

The Florida Veterans Foundation (FVF) is proud to welcome the twenty-one members of the 2021-2022 Legislature who have or are currently serving in the United State Military. We are especially gratified that six members are currently serving in uniform as Reservists or members of the Florida National Guard.

During the months of January and February the FVF will highlight one of these heroes each day and provide their background, including their military services. We encourage you to share this background so that Floridians know the military heritage that exists in the Legislature and how some legislators are serving their country in two ways, by being a legislator and a service member.
