Military & Veterans

We Love Our Military

Did you know that the Navarre area has been ranked as one of the most military friendly communities in the country?  Our state is blessed to have 20 active-duty military installations and great training and testing ranges, several right here in our community.

The State of Florida has released the 2021 Florida Military Friendly Guide.  Here is the link  Florida Military Friendly Guide 2022-23

The Chamber’s Military Affairs Committee works to promote communication and interaction between the military and the businesses of the Navarre Beach area. It is our goal to make all service members, past and present, and their families feel welcome in Navarre and Santa Rosa County, whether you are just here for a visit or have made it your home.
