VyStar Credit Union was founded with military members in mind, and we are proud to support our local heroes by sponsoring a special event.
To honor the 30th anniversary of Operation Desert Shield and Operation Desert Storm, and specifically those who served from Jacksonville-area units, the Cecil Field POW/MIA Memorial is hosting a remembrance ceremony from 10:30 a.m. until 1 p.m. on Feb. 27 at the Chapel of the High-Speed Pass. The ceremony, which will take place on the future site of the National POW/MIA Memorial and Museum, will feature the dedication of the new Aircrew Memorial and a Gold Star Families Memorial.
The Jacksonville military community had a very important role in Operation Desert Shield and Operation Desert Storm. That included 27 squadrons, 14 naval and military sealift command ships and numerous staff and medical detachments. VyStar is proud of these brave men and women.
For more information, please visit the POW/MIA Memorial Website.
VyStar Credit Union is excited to participate in the 29th annual World of Nations Celebration, where visitors will be able to enjoy unique cultures from around the globe as part of Northeast Florida’s largest multicultural festival.
The World of Nations Celebration gives visitors the opportunity to “travel” around the world and experience the sights, sounds, tastes and languages of many different countries. It’s kind of like getting your passport stamped a dozen times or more without ever having to step foot on a plane.
This year’s event will be held Feb. 26-28 at Tailgaters Parking, which is located at 225 Talleyrand Ave. in Jacksonville. (That’s just a short walk from TIAA Bank Field.)
For ticket and event information, please visit the City of Jacksonville website. We can’t wait to get the adventure started and hope to see you there!
