54th Annual Veterans Day Tribute and 2018 Operation: REVEILLE

10 AM to Noon

The community is invited to the county's 54th annual Veterans Day Tribute saluting military members of all eras and branches of service. The ceremonial celebration will feature patriotic music, guest speakers, JROTC drill performers, and light refreshments. The event, which is hosted in part with the Veterans Council of Hillsborough County, will also recognize the World War I Centennial (100 year anniversary of the end of "The Great War").

For the second year in a row, the Veterans Day National Committee of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs has named Hillsborough County's Veterans Memorial Park and LeRoy Collins, Jr. Veterans Museum to its official list of Regional Veterans Day Sites.

The day will also include the 2018 Operation: REVEILLE initiative. In conjunction with Tampa Hillsborough Homeless Initiative, Hillsborough County, and City of Tampa, the rapid-rehousing event honors 25 military Veterans in need of housing by presenting each Veteran with keys to their very own home on Veterans Day.

Veterans Memorial Park & Museum will be open before and after the event. Admission is free, bleacher seating is available, and lawn chairs are also permitted.
