Make Everyday Veterans Day #greenlightavet

That's my dad smiling proudly in this treasured family picture. He was a veteran of the United States Army and a Reservist, and damned proud of it. All day, everyday. Raised within a military family, the fashion trend of wearing your  "Army Greens " was the new black.  

Green is the color of hope. Green is the color of renewal and of well-being. In industry terms, to get a "green light” refers to an indication to proceed with a project of initiative. By changing one light to a green light helps to spark a national conversation that needs to be had, the recognition of our veterans. Let's “greenlight” the initiative, and spotlight our veterans as valued members within our communities.


All across our nation, United States veterans represent some of America's bravest, dedicated men and women. As Americans, it is a privilege to be able to show our veterans the appreciation deserved.  In their everyday lives at home, often times veterans are camouflaged among the many faces that we see each day.

Greenlight A Vet is a national campaign to establish a unified tribute of support for our veterans by changing one household light to a green light.





To join the #greenlightavet campaign, show your support by replacing one light with a green light prominently displayed in a visible location-on your porch, in your home, or at your office. Allow your green light to glow every day as a visible symbol of appreciation and support for our veterans. 

Help to grow the initiative by sharing your support. Stand as a supporter by taking a picture of your green light and posting it online via social media using the hashtag #greenlightavet.
