BREVARD COUNTY • PORT CANAVERAL, FLORIDA –During its October Board meeting, the Canaveral Port Authority approved designs for a Port Canaveral display at the new Brevard Veterans Memorial Center on Merritt Island and contributed $25,000 to the expansion project.
The Board also approved waiving cruise parking fees for vehicles displaying a Disabled Veteran (DV) license plate issued under s. 320.084; s. 320.0842; or s. 320.0845, Florida Statutes.
The complimentary parking is effective beginning today.
“We honor our veterans for their service and appreciate sacrifices they have made on behalf of our country,” said Commission Chairman Jerry Allender. “We are happy to tangibly show our gratitude for their contributions to our freedom.”
The display at the Veteran’s Center will focus on the history of the U.S. Air Force, Army, Navy, and Coast Guard at Port Canaveral.
According to Commission Vice Chairman Wayne Justice, a retired Coast Guard Admiral who led the effort to preserve the history of military presence at Port Canaveral, “The exhibit will be a lasting memorial to the men and women who served this community and this country and preserve important artifacts for the education and enjoyment of generations to come.”
