Fleet Landing celebrates veterans at 2017 Military Ball


Fleet Landing honored over 150 veterans at its 2017 Military Ball in October.

Members from all five service branches — Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines and Coast Guard — started the evening with a cocktail hour and welcome address

from Col. Pete Edmonds, chairperson of this year’s Military Ball. After the national

anthem, attendees enjoyed dinner and dancing, featuring music from Express Sound.

Residents enjoy robust wellness programming; educational, cultural and social events; fine and casual dining; and the full continuum of healthcare services and maintenance-free living on the community’s

95-acre campus, located just five blocks from the ocean.
