CARRBORO, N.C. – The Carrboro Town Council has passed a resolution for Nov. 6-12 to be a time to honor the service and sacrifice of individuals in uniform transitioning from active service.
The people of Carrboro respect, admire and appreciate the individuals who selflessly have served the United States of America in the Armed Forces by placing themselves in challenging or perilous situations. The contributions and sacrifices of those individuals who served in the Armed Forces have been vital in maintaining the freedoms and ways of life that we enjoy in our local communities.
Operation Green Light is a nationwide initiative to support veterans and raise awareness about the challenges many veterans face in accessing benefits and services.
In observance of Operation Green Light, the Town of Carrboro will be displaying green lights on Carrboro Town Hall. The Town Council encourages residents to participate by displaying a green light in a window of their place of business or residence from Nov. 6-12.
The Town of Carrboro seeks to join other communities through Operation Green Light for Veterans to shine a light on the plight of veterans across the country who are having a hard time connecting with benefits after serving their country.
