Ceremony to honor the fallen in our community.

The dedication ceremony of the St. Petersburg Veterans Memorial at Dell Homes Park marks one of the first collaborations between local government, the Federal Parks System, and a St. Petersburg Veteran whose mission is to give back to our brothers and sisters from our community who were killed in action.

The Gold Star Service Flag flies high above as friends and families view the memorial for the first time. Special thanks to the Gold Star Relatives, Lara Sayer, Councilmen Charlie Gerdes, Major General Edward F. Dorman, III, and the vision behind the project, Ret. SSG. Charles Claybaker.
