A Letter From the Veterans Museum and Education Center's President
Today, I want to ask the citizens of Volusia County to support a Veterans Museum dedicated to honoring all the veterans, especially the veterans of Volusia County. We have witnessed the fantastic support of the Honor Flight Program for veterans over the last few years but which ended in 2012. Now we have an opportunity to extend the legacy of our veterans and create a continuing focus on the services and sacrifices of those who have defended our freedoms. A partnership between the Veterans Museum and Education Center Inc., and the Daytona Beach International Airport has created an opportunity to say we really appreciate those who have defended our freedom and will support this very important community project. A space within the airport is being made available to accommodate the museum. It is the responsibility of the Veterans Museum for the cost to refurbish the 1200 square foot space. We need your help in generating the funds for this project and all donations are tax deductible. We are asking you to participate in sponsoring this very important community project. John A. Brinkley, President Veterans Museum & Education Center Inc.

The above image is a proposed layout of the 1,200 square ft area located on the second floor of the Daytona International Airport. All donations and membership fees collected will be invested into making a suitable area to commemorate and educate Volusia County citizens. The VMEC advisory board will meet with the County Council in Sept 2015. Our goal is to have 75% of the funding needed to move forward with this project. Our overall goal is $30,000.
