The Brevard Veterans Memorial Center (VMC) is a non-profit organization with one goal in mind…TO SERVE OUR VETERANS!
Since 1978 the Brevard Veterans Memorial Center and Council have taken on many missions to support over 70,000 Brevard Veterans and their families as well as to help all citizens and visitors learn firsthand about what U.S. veterans have contributed to make our country great. 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, plaza, and park.
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 4,400 veterans were served in 2018. Our facility is home to many veterans organizations. If you’re looking for information on other veterans events in the area, visit our calendar.
The VMC depends on volunteers. Contact us if you would like to volunteer to support veterans services, help with our museum, work in the library or any other function.
Our Mission Statement for both organizations says it all. 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 veterans organization. BVC’s mission is to work in conjunction with area veterans, local government, and other veterans’ organizations to support and promote the interests and welfare of Brevard County veterans and their families.
- The Veterans Memorial Center (VMC), is our 501(c)3 non-profit organization. VMC’s mission is to maintain and operate a premier facility to support veterans and their families, educate the public, and provide a vibrant memorial to the service and sacrifice of all military veterans through a museum, memorial plaza, library, and park.
