MONROE COUNTY, FL – In advance of Veterans Day, Monroe County is illuminating the Harvey Government Center in Key West and the Murray Nelson Government Center in Key Largo green through Nov. 12 as part of Operation Green Light for Veterans, a nationwide effort uniting counties to support military Veterans. Veterans Day is Nov. 11. The initiative, led by the National Association of Counties, raises awareness about the unique challenges many Veterans face and the resources available at the county, state, and federal levels to assist Veterans and their families.
Residents, businesses, and other organizations are encouraged to participate by changing one light bulb at their home to a green one.
“By shining a green light, we let our Veterans know they are seen, appreciated, and supported,” said Monroe County Director of Veterans Affairs Cathy Crane. “Operation Green Light shows that we appreciate and have much gratitude for the service and sacrifices of our Veterans.”
In 2022, more than 300 counties participated in Operation Green Light. Counties and residents across the country are sharing their participation on social media using the hashtag #OperationGreenLight.
