Dodge County Board Adopts Resolution In Support Of Operation Green Light

(Juneau) The Dodge County Board is calling on all residents to recognize the sacrifices made by veterans. The board this week adopted a resolution declaring October through November 11th, which is Veterans Day, a time to salute and honor the service of the men and women in uniform who are transitioning from active duty to civilian life.

It is in conjunction with Operation Green Light, a nation-wide promotion to ensure that veterans are connected with benefits they earned while serving the country. The resolution asks all citizens to display a green light in a window of their place of business or residence starting October 1st through November 11th to recognize the importance of honoring those who made immeasurable sacrifices to preserve freedom.

Dodge County Board Supervisor Jeff Breselow says the county can and should be doing more to help its veterans.

“But for the efforts of our veterans and our patriots in this country we would not be here tonight,” says Breselow. “We should do all that we can for our veterans to serve them and help them in the future. It’s great that we’re doing this, but I think there is far more that we can be doing for veterans.”

Approximately 200,000 service members transition to civilian life annually. That number is estimated to increase by 20-percent in the near future.
