Green Light a Vet
During the month of November we are asking our residents to Greenlight a Vet. This is where you change one of your front porch lights to a green light bulb. In doing this you are showing your support to veterans both in and around our community. "The simple action of changing one light to green is intended to spark a national conversation regarding the recognition of veterans, and "greenlight" them forward as valued members of our communities" (Greenlight a Vet). Why green? Well, green is the color of hope, renewal and the term greenlight is used to mean moving forward. Below are all the facts on Greenlighting a Vet.
The Meaning of Green
"Green is the color of hope, renewal and well-being.
"Greenlight" is also a term commonly used to activate forward movement.
The simple action of changing one light to green is intended to spark a national conversation regarding the recognition
of veterans, and "greenlight" them forward as valued members of our communities."
What is Greenlight a Vet?
America's veterans are some of our nation's bravest, hardest-working men and women.
However, it is hard to show them the appreciation they deserve when, back home and out of uniform; they are more
camouflaged than ever.
Greenlight a Vet is a campaign to establish visible national support for our veterans by changing one light to green.
Change One Light to Green
Let us honor our veterans not onl
y on November 11th, but all year round by changing one light to green in a visible
location - on your porch, your home, or at your office- and keep it glowing every day as a symbol of appreciation and
support for our veterans.
To help share your support, take a picture of your green light and post it using the hashtag #greenlightavet.
