The military has a great tradition of mentoring those we work with to continue the mission in any individual’s absence. It is in this spirit of service and dedication to our country and community that I follow the great example of Michael Waldrop, and Paul Hay before him, in leading the Orlando Mayor’s Veterans Advisory Council.
Our community is a great place for veterans and our families. Whether you are looking to attend our colleges or vocational schools, join our entrepreneurial sector or work in the corporations in our area, our community has everything you need to succeed in your post-military life while never losing touch with the spirit of camaraderie you had while serving. Attend one of our meetings and witness the support from Mayor Dyer, the City Commissioners and the wider community for our area’s veterans. With over two dozen organizations represented, chances are you will feel at home.
