NEW CITY – In tribute to veterans, Rockland County’s Allison Paris Building on New Hempstead Road in New City and Building A in the Pomona Health Complex off Route 45 are lit green for Operation Green Light from the beginning of November through the 13.
Operation Green Light’s mission is to show support for veterans of all military conflicts, as well as raise awareness about the unique challenges faced by many veterans and their families, and the resources that are available at the county, state, and federal level to assist veterans and their families.
By shining a green light, the County of Rockland is showing residents veterans are seen, appreciated, and supported.
Operation Green Light is a collaboration between the New York State Association of Counties, National Association of Counties, the National Association of County Veteran Service Officers and the Joseph P. Dwyer Veteran Peer Support Program at BRIDGES.
“We thank all our veterans for something often taken for granted – our freedom,” said County Executive Ed Day. “For all who chose to serve and protect our liberties, we hope our participation in Operation Green Light serves as a reminder that we do not take your sacrifice lightly.”
