Veterans Committee Mission

The mission of Palm Beach County Veterans Committee is to proudly honor through the Memorial Day Ceremony and the Veterans Day Parade our past, present, and future veterans in this our Country; the United States of America.

For the past 10 years, a group of local veterans and community activists have sponsored Memorial Day ceremonies and Veterans Day parades honoring our Nation's veterans. This group is officially known as the Palm Beach County Veterans Committee. The Committee receives no grants or loans from any government agencies. It relies entirely on private donations to pay the expenses associated with these important national events.

The Committee was established as a DBA by the Friends of Veterans, Inc. (FOV). The FOV is a Florida not-for-profit corporation, established in 1993, that is tax-exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. FOV is licensed to receive charitable contributions by the State of Florida.
