Leave NO American Veteran Behind. Induct Florida's historical veterans in The Florida Veterans Hall of Fame.

When asked to serve, they did.  After their War they became
prominent Floridians serving our State.  Sam Pasco (U.S. Senator), Gov. Edward Perry and David Lang, Founder of the Florida National Guard were kept out of the 2014 class. Should one group of American Veterans be selected for dishonor? 

If so, what group of  Veterans is next?  What message are we sending to today's generation about how their service will be treated in the future if history decides to call their war 'unpopular'?

The current interpretation by the Dept. and Cabinet actions exclude various groups of Florida Veterans (National Guard, Confederate, Colonial, Territorial and Native American).  Why is one group good enough but the others are not?  They are all Floridians and they all answered the call of duty.
