Queen Anne's County Joins Operation Green Light to Illuminate Support for Local Veterans

In a display of solidarity with military veterans in anticipation of Veterans Day, Queen Anne's County proudly unveils plans to illuminate select county buildings green from November 6-12, aligning with Operation Green Light for Veterans, a nationwide initiative spearheaded by the National Association of Counties (NACo). Operation Green Light raises awareness about the unique challenges faced by veterans and highlights the available resources at the county, state, and federal levels to support veterans and their families.

In alignment with the National Association of Counties, Queen Anne’s County pledges its support for Operation Green Light. Operation Green Light, beginning on November 6th and concluding on November 12th, 2023, signifies the official commencement of the county’s time period to honor the service and sacrifices of military servicemembers and veterans. 

Furthermore, Queen Anne’s County is proud to collaborate with the Center for the Military and Veteran Family (VAMSA) to promote and celebrate Veterans Day on November 11th, as well as National Veterans and Military Families Month throughout November 2023. This partnership emphasizes the county’s dedication to recognizing and appreciating the sacrifices made by United States military personnel, veterans, and their families.

County Commissioner, Jim Moran said "Participating in Operation Green Light is a meaningful gesture for Queen Anne's County, showcasing our unwavering support for local veterans. Our community deeply values the dedication and sacrifice of our servicemen and women, and this initiative is an opportunity to express our gratitude."

In conjunction with illuminating select county buildings, Queen Anne's County urges residents, businesses, and organizations to take part by simply changing one light bulb in their homes to a green bulb. Whether visible to neighbors and passersby or sparking a conversation with friends, a green light serves as a symbol of appreciation and acknowledgment for our veterans.
