Community Involvement

Community Involvement

We are committed to giving back to the community that supports us. In addition to supporting Veterans in need, we also participate in such events as Escorting the Replica of the Vietnam Wall to the annual Veterans reunion at Wickam Park in Melbourne, the Memorial Day Parade in Sanford were the Bunker Riders have escorted the Caribou that is currently on display at the Museum, and many other events.

Each year in Oviedo the Historical Society puts up a tribute to Florida’s fallen soldiers, and we had many of our members spend the day there helping to put up the crosses on the lawn honoring the soldiers from Central Florida who gave their lives for our country.

The Rock & brews in Oviedo hosted a Ceremony in June to honor a local fallen hero, Spc. Brendan N. Salazar, the bunker riders and members of the Vietnams and all Veterans of Central Florida where onsite to lend a hand and participate in the Patriot guard for the event.

Honor Flights send Military Veterans to see Memorials of their prospective wars and many of our Veterans here at Vietnam and All Veterans of Central Florida attend the “welcome Home” ceremonies at Orlando and the Sanford Airports. Each Holiday season we donate meals to Veterans in need and will be having a Toy drive this year, please watch for details if you would like to help us by donating toys to families in need. Every year we participate in the Veteran’s Day Parade in downtown Orlando, where we escort the Caribou and 2 of our Vietnam era Willy’s jeeps. We will also be participating in the Great Day in the park in Oviedo. Please be sure to follow our Current Events calendar to know where we will be next!

Paws for Vets

On Feb. 13, 2016, we held a poker run to benefit the Paws for Veterans organization. This is a non profit group that trains rescue dogs for Veterans with PTSD and disabilities. We raised over $1600 to help them provide food, care and licensing for these animals.
