Statute will be an eternal tribute and reminder to all of our ancestors that, through their many sacrifices, gave us our freedoms as we know them today.
This memorial will be a significant addition to the existing veteran memorials already found downtown at the Pensacola Veterans Memorial Park and will be a valuable
asset to Pensacola's diverse historical tourism. To learn more about our Minuteman and the Pensacola DAR
please contact us.
Our meetings are held on the third Saturday of the month, beginning with a social time at 10:00 a.m. All are welcome,

Pensacola is known as the cradle of
naval aviation, and is the home of the famous Blue Angels, who fly the F-18s. The area is also home to
the University of West Florida and Pensacola State College. Throughout history, Pensacola was famous for Fort George,
Fort Redoubt, Fort Barrancas,
and the St. Michael's Cemetery, gravesite of the wife of a signer of the Declaration of Independence.
Pensacola is also known as America's First Settlement and the City of Five Flags, due to the five governments that flew their
flags over the city during its history: the flag of Spain (Castile), the flag of France, the flag of Great Britain, the flag of the
Confederate States of America, and the flag of the United States of America. Other nicknames include World's
Whitest Beaches. Pensacola is called the Cradle of Naval Aviation, because the National Museum of Naval Aviation and the National Flight Academy
are located at Pensacola Naval Air Station, home of the legendary Blue Angels. Pensacola is also called the Western Gate to the Sunshine State and the Emerald Coast.
