This year, Vet Events Tally brought The Cost of Freedom Tribute to Tom Brown Park. This moving outdoor tribute honored all whose daily job it is to put themselves in harm's way. The Tribute included an 80% replica of the Vietnam Memorial Wall as well as displays honoring all Veterans and Active Duty personnel, our First Responders, those who lost their lives on September 11, 2001 as well as over 45 display boards honoring our Veterans from the Revolutionary war to the current conflicts in the Global War on Terrorism. If you enjoyed the Cost of Freedom Tribute, we encourage you to make a Pledge to help us offset the costs of bringing the Tribute to Tallahassee.
We are currently seeking sponsors for our 2014 roster of activities. Sponsorship includes recognition of your organization at all of major events and gives your organization unparalleled exposure to not only the Tallahassee community but to all of the visitors from the surrounding Big Bend region who will come to pay respect at the Cost of Freedom Tribute during its 5-day stay at Tom Brown Park.
Vet Events Tally is the organizer and fundraiser for the Veterans Day Parade. Fortunately, the City and County provide services, manpower and a grant to help but this does NOT begin to cover the costs involved in creating and maintaining the Best Veterans Day Parade in America. The Parade is supported with funds pledged by the community.

Whether you want to volunteer year-round or for one of our many events and activities, we have an opportunity that will fit into your schedule!
