Our community is steeped in military tradition and enriched with a strong military presence. The full range of service, sacrifice, duty and honor that comes with military service is amply illustrated in the example of our own citizens. We in turn honor that service at the Park with monuments already established and others yet to come. This park is dedicated to the memories of those who have died in the service of our Country, whether in time of war or in peacetime.
The Veterans Memorial Park Foundation of Pensacola mission is defined and controlled by license agreement between the VMPFP and the City of Pensacola. This agreement directs us to focus the duties and responsibilities of the VMPFP in the following functional areas: Administration and Oversight, Education and Community Outreach, Maintenance and Grounds Keeping, Marketing and Fundraising. Authority exercised by the Foundation would be subject to oversight and final approval by the appropriate departments of the City of Pensacola.
The VMPFP has adopted as its watchwords Fidelity, Stewardship and Accountability. The members of our Board have pledged their sacred honor to examine their behavior by the light of these concepts. We look forward to a long and fruitful partnership with the City of Pensacola to provide and maintain a perpetual, fitting and living memorial to our Nation's fallen warriors.
