Long Description:
Copied from the plaque:
"Dedicated to the Servicemen and women of World War II. Nov 11, 2001"

The WWII Memorial in Tallahassee, Florida was dedicated June 6, 2005 and was the result of the State of Florida developing a living memorial to Florida's involvement in World War II. Besides this permanent memorial in Tallahassee, portions of the project include traveling exhibit, educational materials, oral history programs, and community events that engage citizens of all ages. In addition, the Department of Education developed a World War II Supplementary Curriculum that educates school-aged children who have no personal memory of World War II to understand the impact of the war in Florida. It is estimated there are 600,000 veterans living in Florida at this time. The theme of Florida's WWII Memorial is "to preserve the indomitable spirit, exceptional commitment, and willing sacrifices for generations to come".
