In 1930, the Seminole community got behind its local leaders when word spread that Florida was getting a new National Soldiers Home. The newly formed VA wanted to provide healthcare for veterans, and at the same time the local economy was in need of a public works project. The Bay Pines site was chosen and construction began in 1931. That’s a brief introduction to one of the most interesting programs we’ve had the honor of presenting.
