Light Up Rochester and Southeast Minnesota With Your Green Light
WHAT IS GREEN LIGHT A VET?
Green Light A Vet 2017 is an ongoing campaign to establish visible national support for our veterans by changing one light to green. Do it for a vet you know, or for those vets who have maybe fallen through the cracks in society.
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.
-- VETERANS DAY IS SATURDAY NOVEMBER 11th 2017 --
Please note, I'm not behind this initiative because I was a veteran myself. I just consider myself a messenger! I did serve with pride, about 40 years ago in the United States Navy, and had the distinction of doing so honorably. I reaped many personal benefits, life lessons, and refined skills I will always be grateful I had a chance to develop and achieve, while serving the country I love. Blogging about Green Light A Vet for me is about shining a (green) light on a Vet whom society may have forgot, or has fallen thru the cracks. It's for the VET who may struggle with physical or psychological disabilities, who has not had a fair shake due to those disabilities, or personal hardship. This continues to be my hope. -'Train Wreck' ~ Z-Rock Weekends \m/\m/
