Veterans Memorial Island Sanctuary
Vero Beach, FL
Veterans Memorial Island is a tribute to those who have given their lives in service to the nation. It was a vision of Alex MacWilliam. After WWII spoil from dredging the intercoastal waterway was used to create the spoil island. Through the work of the community in 1964 the Island was dedicated to the Veterans. Since then it has become one of the very finest places to note their service.
