I am participating in Green Light a Vet because of what it represents. Veterans of the United States Armed Forces should be acknowledged and appreciated by all citizens living in this great country. The Veterans who have served this country whether on the frontlines or in support positions have made great sacrifices; not only their own safety, but their time, energy and some have given their lives. Let us show our appreciation for our nation’s veterans not only on Veterans Day, but every day. Let’s go beyond the Green Light and have a conversation with them, let them know that they are appreciated, shake their hand, let’s be here for them because they have been there for us. Thank you to all who have served or are still serving in the United States Armed Forces.
