Fact

Vietnam War There are 506,393 (36%) Vietnam-era veterans in Florida, who served from 1961 to 1975.  Florida is home to more than 519,000 Vietnam-era veterans, so it is very likely that one in three veterans you meet in the Sunshine State is a Vietnam veteran. 

 FDVA has seen an increase in disability claims filed on behalf of Vietnam veterans due to triggered responses to the current wars and the manifestation of acute diseases brought on by exposure to Agent Orange.   Florida is home to more than 519,000 Vietnam-era veterans, so it is very likely that  one in three veterans you meet in the Sunshine State is a Vietnam veteran.
