Manatee County Veterans' Monument Park is located right behind the Manatee Memorial Hospital. Here we provide an opportunity for our Veterans, Veteran families and friends to reflect on the many local U.S. heroes we have lost through all the 20th and 21st century wars. The only war not yet represented is the ongoing Gulf War era that began with Desert Storm in January 1991 and continues forward with GWOT in Iraq and Afghanistan. We need donations to support this effort and the continued maintenance of our Veterans' Park. To donate send a check to the Manatee County Veterans Council for Veterans Park.
