"The Orlando Magic honored The Bunker as Hometown Heroes, pregame on the court on 9 November 2018.Representatives from The Bunker will be attendance for the honor: The Bunker President, Mike Lane and Curator of The Bunker, Joe Barolet."
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.

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 as well as setting up a static display at the home UCF Football game on Memorial Day. Please be sure to follow our Current Events calendar to know where we will be next!
