About Greenlight A Vet

America’s veterans are some of our nation’s bravest, hardest-working men and women. However, it is hard to show them the appreciation they deserve when, back home and out of uniform. Greenlight A Vet is a campaign to establish visible national support for our veterans by changing one light to 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.
