Near Ocala in Marion County, Florida — The American South (South Atlantic)
Florida Honors and Remembers our POW’s and MIA’s
The light of freedom still burns brightly in our world today because of the service and sacrifice of America’s men and women in uniform.
Our Nation’s servicemen and women have fought the forces of tyranny and won victories for liberty, human dignity, and the ideals of democracy.
We remember, with profound gratitude, those who suffered captivity and those whose fate remains unknown.
We honor and pay tribute to those valiant families of our servicemen and women who remain missing – families who have had to
suffer not only the absence of their loved ones, but also the certainty of their fate.
We the citizens of Florida commit that “You Shall Not Be Forgotten”
Erected by Florida Department of Highways.
