Once again, Sandoval County is honoring its veterans this year by participating in Operation Green Light, a program sponsored by the National Association of Counties and the National Association of County Veterans Service Officers.
From Nov. 6-12, the Sandoval County administration building is being lit in green each evening to let veterans know that they are seen, appreciated and supported. For more information about Operation Green Light, visit naco.org/program/operation-green-light-veterans.
Operation Green Light, which in 2022 drew participation from more than 300 counties, is designed to raise awareness about the unique challenges veterans face and the resources available to assist them and their families at the county, state and federal levels.
“Operation Green Light is an important way to show support and gratitude for the immeasurable sacrifices our veterans have made,” said NACo President Mary Jo McGuire. “The act of shining a green light is simple but deeply symbolic. The heroes who have served our country are all around us — they deserve to be recognized and have access to services that help them thrive.”
