#FortFriday: Fort Pierce Inlet State Park is a half-mile stretch of breathtaking white sand beach. During World War II, it was the birthplace and training ground for U.S. Navy Frogmen -- forerunners of today's Navy Seals. It was here that many of the 140,000 personnel stationed in the area practiced for the D-Day invasion of Europe. 'Dynamite Point' earned its name from the activities of the Navy Underwater Demolition Team. #FLStateParks

#FortFridays: Fort Clinch State Park became one of Florida's first state parks in 1935. Named after General Clinch, the fort was built at the mouth of St. Mary's River in 1847, and served as a military post during the Spanish American War, Civil War and World War II. Experience the First Weekend Union Garrison the first weekend of every month, where you can travel back in time and see how Union soldiers lived day-to-day in 1860s America. #FLStatePark
