Florida Gulf Coast Chapter

About Our Chapter

[two_third last=”no”]
The Florida-Gulf Coast Chapter formerly met as a chapter of Western Front Association-U.S. Branch. We are now affiliated with the World War One Historical Association. We seek to draw participation from the surrounding coastal southern states: North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Alabama and Louisiana. Our meetings are held annually, usually in the spring, at venues around Tampa, Florida and Savannah Georgia.
