Thurston residents may see green lights for Veterans Day this weekend. Here’s why
From The Olympian:
Thurston County will illuminate its buildings green this weekend to commemorate Veterans Day.
The lights will be turned on Friday through Sunday as part of a national initiative called Operation Green Light, according to a Tuesday news release.
With this effort, the county aims to bring awareness to the unique challenges veterans face and the resources available to them.
The county encouraged the public to participate in Operation Green Light this weekend by changing at least one light bulb to a green bulb. The release says this bulb can be an exterior light that’s visible to passersby or an interior light that “sparks a conversation with friends.”
Those who participate are encouraged to share their green lights on social media with the hashtag #OperationGreenLight, the county news release said.
Operation Green Light was organized by the National Association of Counties and National Association of County Veteran Service Officers.
