Description of the Project:
Each year, 250,000 U.S. military members transition to civilian life, where a new challenge begins. However, it is difficult for communities to show their support when, back home and out of uniform, veterans are more camouflaged than ever. Greenlight A Vet is a national campaign to establish visible support for veterans, and "greenlight" (a term commonly used to activate forward movement) them back into their communities.
Even in times of peace, there are many reminders of war, including bright lights at night, which can act as a trigger for those suffering from PTSD, a condition that is contributing to 22 veterans taking their life every single day. So we asked Americans to turn a negative trigger into an ongoing symbol of support by switching one white light in their homes to green – the color of safety, renewal and well-being – and to keep it glowing every day.
