FHP Honors Vets in Local Parades
Troop C Assists with November Fest: November fest is an annual fundraiser held at Nativity Catholic Church in Brandon, FL. The Florida Highway Patrol has a 22 year history of assisting November Fest with traffic and security. This year November Fest was held over the Veterans Day weekend.
On Veterans Day, Nativity Catholic Church and School held a ceremony to express their sincere appreciation to all the members of local emergency response and law enforcement agencies. Accepting these awards were current members of local agencies who had served in the military keeping our country safe at home and abroad. Accepting the award for the Florida Highway Patrol was Trooper Joshua Campbell. Trooper Campbell served in the Air Force and is currently assigned to Troop C- Tampa.
Miami Troopers Honor Veterans in Two Parades: Members of the southern regional FHP honor guard, Troop E PIO Lt. Alex Annunziato, and Corporal Gary Dunick, participated in two separate Veterans Day parades. Troop E has strong military roots and has supported members during various deployments in support of operations in Iraq, Afghanistan, and domestically following the Deepwater Horizon oil catastrophe.
The two parades took place in Miami Beach and Key West. Over three thousand Miami Beach residents and nearly two thousand Key West residents lined the respective parade routes. Both reviewing stands were impressed with FHP’s professionalism and patriotism. FHP is proud to support veterans!
