A year ago, Broward County Bar Association Executive Director Braulio Rosa was struck with the notion that Florida lawyers and judges don’t receive enough recognition for the years they spent honorably serving their country in the armed forces.

“When you think about it, it’s a small amount of people that actually defend our freedom,” he said. “It’s a cliché, but it’s true.”

That perceived oversight will be remedied November 8, from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. in a virtual ceremony, “The Florida Patriot: Honoring Legal Leader Veterans Service to Country and Community.”
