Greenlight a Vet
For a civilian, turning on your porch light is a neighborly act, welcoming guests and contributing to the safety of the community. But for a veteran, white light at night causes panic and stress, making you visible to overhead aircraft and vulnerable to enemy fire.
The simple act of changing our porch lights from white to green—the color of lights on military bases, the color of the military, and the color of hope—makes our veterans feel safe to come out and more hopeful knowing that there are allies next door.
