2023 Operation Green Light

November 6, 2023 - November 12, 2023

America’s counties have a long and proud history of serving our nation’s veterans, a legacy that continues to this day as we work with our federal, state and local partners to ensure that the former service members have access to the resources they need to thrive.

Once again, this Veterans Day, the National Association of Counties (NACo) and the National Association of County Veterans Service Officers (NACVSO) invite the nation’s 3,069 counties, parishes, and boroughs to join Operation Green Light and show support for veterans by lighting our buildings green from November 6-12. By shining a green light, county governments and our residents will let veterans know that they are seen, appreciated and supported.

COUNTIES MATTER FOR VETERANS County Veteran Service Officers (CVSOs) in 29 states are responsible for successfully processing more than $52 billion in compensation, pension, health care and other benefits for veterans each year. Counties across the nation operate Veterans Treatment Courts, through which we can connect justice-involved veterans with programs and benefits that can treat underlying mental health and substance abuse conditions. Counties support veterans’ access to stable housing, employment and education and critical mental health services that treat trauma and prevent suicide.
