Spread the love

To honor veterans and help increase awareness of veteran resources in Oakland County, the Oakland County courthouse will be illuminated in green light in honor of Veterans Day, Nov. 10-13.

The National Association of Counties (NACo) created Operation Green Light as a tribute to veterans across the country. This initiative is designed to inspire local veterans to explore the services provided by their local Veteran’s Service Offices.

This Veterans Day, the National Association of Counties (NACo) and the National Association of County Veteran Service Officers 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 Nov. 7 to Nov. 13. By shining a green light, county governments and our residents will let veterans know that they are seen, appreciated, and supported. For information, visit www.naco.org, or www.nacvso.org.

Oakland County Executive David Coulter will welcome guests to the Oakland County Executive Office Building, 41 W., for a reception and remarks celebrating Veterans Day from 5 to 6 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 10, at 2100 Pontiac Lake Road, Waterford Township.

Leaders of the Veterans of Foreign Wars and American Legions, Oakland County Board of Commissioner and Executive Office teams who have served in the military and other notable veterans are invited. RSVP by Nov. 7 to Tyrone Jordan, Oakland County Veterans Services [email protected], 248-858-0785, OakGov.com/Veteran.
