To show support and honor veterans this Veterans Day holiday, Traill County Residents are encouraged to participate by simply changing one light bulb in their house to a green bulb. This can be an exterior light that neighbors can see, or an interior light that sparks a conversation with friends.
By shining a green light, we let our veterans know that they are seen, appreciated, and supported. While this event is focused around the week of Veterans Day (November 7th -13th), participants are encouraged to continue shining the light year-round. Residents can share their participation on social media using the hashtag #OperationGreenLight.
Operation Green Light is a simple way to express our collective appreciation for the public service of our veterans. Freeborn County encourages everyone to join us in displaying a green light for our veterans and to also reflect on how we, as a nation and at the county level, assist our military service personnel back into civilian life upon completion of their service to our country.
Contact your local Traill County Veterans Services Officer, at 701-430-7059 or visit naco.org/operationgreenlight for more information.
