Since 1917, the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks has demonstrated its compassion for the veterans of our armed forces through numerous programs and activities. Since 1946, the order has maintained the pledge,
“So long as there are Veterans, the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks will never forget them.”
Each November, the Elks observe National Veterans Remembrance Month. We ask everyone in our communities throughout Florida to join the Elks as we thank our veterans. Let’s all do our part to remember these men and women.
God bless our veterans, God bless the men and women serving in our military and their families, and God bless America.
