Fort Pierce is now home to a memorial with national significance. U.S. Representative Stephanie Murphy co-led an amendment to the FY22 National Defense Authorization Act that officially designates the memorial at the Navy SEAL Museum in Fort Pierce a national memorial site. The U.S. House of Representatives approved the bill this fall, helping to ensure our nation’s warriors are never forgotten. The museum—which exists on the training grounds of the Frogmen, the original Navy combat divers—preserves the history of the SEALs with exhibits that inform and educate on their role in protecting our country. Visitors can check out unique weapons, watercraft, and combat vehicles used by SEALs, including a Sikorsky UH-60 Black Hawk helicopter. The museum’s memorial wall was added in 2009, and the memorial garden and living beach were introduced this past May.
