Florida’s Role in World War II

Location: Hodges University Naples Campus, Stock Building

About This Event

Presenter: Dr. Ted Childress

Just about any place one may go in the state of Florida, the territory has been marched and fought over at some time or another in the past 500 years. During World War II, due in part to its geographical location as well as its favorable weather conditions, Florida played a major role in training tens of thousands of American and Allied soldiers, sailors and airmen at numerous sites across the state. At the same time, however, enemy U‐boats prowled her lengthy coasts sinking ships and attempting to land saboteurs over her beaches.
