The Collier County Veterans Council

recurring events

The Veterans Council conducts several public patriotic ceremonies throughout the year.  They include Memorial Day, Indedpendence Day parade, Veterans Day, and Flag Day(June 14).  Council members staff these events by organizing speakers, setting up venues, speaking to crowds, and performing patriotic rituals.

In addition, we gather to support funerals of veterans in Lee and Collier Counties.  We also volunteer to staff veteran-related fund raisers and special events.  Our monthly meetings provide a friendly forum where veteran groups can make public announcements, network, and support each other with information.  They are given a platform to announce their upcoming events, recent successes, and invite veterans to support their cause. 

Combat Infantrymen's Association is hosting a dedication of their monument in downtown Fort Myers this Saturday, February 29th. It will last from 10-11am. The address is 2031 Jackson Street, Suite 100, Fort Myers, FL, 33901.

PGA HOPE (Helping Our Patriots Everywhere) is the flagship military program of PGA REACH, the charitable foundation of the PGA of America. PGA HOPE introduces golf to Veterans with disabilities to enhance their physical, mental, social and emotional well-being.

The program introduces the game of golf through a developmental 6-8 week curriculum, taught by PGA Professionals trained in adaptive golf and military cultural competency. All programs are funded by PGA REACH and supplemented by PGA Section Foundations, so the cost of programming is free to all Veterans.

To register for these instructional golf lessons, contact Michelle Goda at or call 561.537.5809

They are scheduled for Wednesdays from 3:30pm to 5:30pm from March 18th through April 22d.


Reenergizing Veterans Through Adventure and Challenge.

Outward Bound for Veterans helps thousands of returning service members and recent veterans readjust to life at home through powerful wilderness courses that draw on the healing benefit of teamwork and challenge through use of the natural world.

Our veterans courses are open to active duty servicemen and servicewomen and veterans of all conflicts who have deployed as a part of their service.  All applicants to our veterans courses will be asked to verify their service with their DD-214 for veterans or deployment documentation for active duty military members.
