In Volusia County, there is a housing development that has roads commemorating famous military leaders. Admiral Halsey Avenue takes its name from Admiral William Frederick Halsey, who earned his Naval Aviator's Wings at the advanced age of 52 (the oldest person ever to do so). He was promoted to Five-Star Fleet Admiral for his record in the South Pacific in 1942 and for the support he provided General Douglas MacArthur's invasion of the Philippines in 1944.
