Orange County is participating in Operation Green Light in support of local veterans
GOSHEN – In anticipation of Veterans Day in November, Orange County Executive Steven Neuhaus has announced that the front of the county government center in Goshen will be green-lit starting November 7thNS through the 13thNS as part of Operation Green Light.
Operation Green Light is a new initiative that supports veterans of all military conflicts, with a special focus on veterans who have served in Iraq and Afghanistan. The campaign also raises awareness of the challenges many veterans face and the county, state, and federal resources available to assist veterans and their families.
“Operation Green Light shows our veterans that their service counts and that we are grateful for it,” said Neuhaus. “In addition to lighting the government center, residents are encouraged to participate by simply replacing a lightbulb in their home with a green lightbulb. It can be an outside light that neighbors and passers-by can see, or an inside light that stimulates a conversation with family and friends. By giving the green light, we let veterans know that they are seen, valued and supported. “
With the hashtag #OperationGreenLight, residents can share their participation on social media.
The initiative was a collaboration between the New York State Association of Counties and the New York State County Veteran Service Officers’ Association.
