Greenlight A Vet

November 10, 2015
Emmetsburg News

Remember the green lights Emmetsburg residents used when hosting RAGBRAI last year? Put those green lights to use again to "Greenlight A Vet."

America's veterans are some of our nation's bravest, hardest-working men and women. However, it's hard to show them the appreciation they deserve when, back home and out of uniform, they're 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 in a visible location-on your porch, in your home, or at your office-and keep it glowing every day as a symbol of appreciation and support for our veterans.

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.

Green light bulbs are available at the Emmetsburg Chamber of Commerce office while supplies last. Talk to Emmetsburg Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Deb Hite to Greenlight A Vet.
