Operation Green Light is a new national collaborative initiative of the National Association of Counties (NACo) to support military veterans, as well as raise awareness about the unique challenges faced by many veterans and the resources that are available at the county, state, and federal level to assist veterans and their families.
The new national collaborative is spearheaded by the National Association of Counties and the National Association of County Veteran Service Officers, building upon the successful efforts of the New York State Association of Counties and the NYS County Veteran Service Officers’ Association in 2021.
“Since the beginning of our nation’s history, we have had those who would step up to defend our freedom, safety, and security. They and their families have made immense sacrifices for our country,” said Alachua County Veteran Services Director Kim Davis. “Our servicemembers have sacrificed for generations, and this service to the country also often results in significant stress to many veterans who served in times of war and conflict. We want to make sure our veterans and their families know that their service mattered, that we are grateful for their sacrifices, and that it is now our turn to make sure their County government and our community serve them.”
