The Brevard Veterans Memorial Center Museum is closed until the end of September 2016. We have completed the building and are in the middle of moving and setting up the new museum. We are going from a 1,000 square foot museum to a 6,000 square foot museum. We need this time to be able to provide you with a beautiful and better museum! We are hopeful that you will be understanding of this and look forward to seeing you again. Thank you for all you have done to help us to be able to build the addition.
The Brevard Veterans Memorial Center (VMC) is a non-profit organization with one goal in mind…TO SERVE OUR VETERANS!
With an amazing array of military artifacts ranging from the Revolutionary War to our current conflicts in the Middle East, we strive to educate the public on our military’s efforts both past and present in our FREE museum, library and plaza.
Our Disabled American Veterans (DAV) Chapter 123 is a nationally recognized group of volunteers here to assist veterans and their families with VA claims and benefits. Over 3,200 veterans were served in 2015. We also provide emergency assistance to qualifying veterans and our facility is home to many veterans organizations.
The VMC depends on volunteers. If you would like to volunteer to support veterans services, help with our museum, work in the library or any other function you are welcome. Please contact the Manager on Duty or any VMC board member.
As with many veteran organizations ours is a group with many missions and thus was divided over the years into two major components. The Brevard Veterans Council (BVC) is our 501(c)19 non-profit and the membership and operational element of what we do is described elsewhere on our web site. The Veterans Memorial Center, is our 501(c)3 non-profit which operates the Museum, Plaza, Library and many other programs and veteran support activities. Both have separate Boards and many of our leaders serve on both Boards. More information about our mission and history can be found on the About page.
