A proposed memorial, developed by the Navy League, passed the Orlando City Planning Board review last week.
It is meant to inspire today’s youth and honor sea service men and women and their families: past, present and future. The memorial will help to convey our city’s appreciation to the men and women in the U.S. Navy, Marine Corps, Coast Guard and Merchant Marine who voluntarily put their lives in harm’s way to protect freedom. It is to be located in Blue Jacket Park, the former Orlando Naval Recruit Training Center site which was home to thousands of service personnel known as “Blue Jackets.”
