Putnam County Historic Courthouse will be Lit in Green to Honor Our Nation’s Veterans

The Putnam County Historic Courthouse will be lit in green to honor our nation’s veterans for Veterans Day, County Executive MaryEllen Odell announced.


“Veterans put their lives on the line to protect us,” County Executive Odell said. “We want to shine a light on their service. We want them to see that we don’t take their sacrifice for granted. We appreciate their service and their excellent example.”


Guardian Revival, a nonprofit that helps support the mental health and well-being of veterans and first responders, donated the green lightbulbs to the county to light the courthouse.


Operation Green Light is a nationwide initiative that aims to raise awareness of the challenges faced by veterans and the resources available to them. Government buildings, businesses and private homes throughout the country will shine a green light for veterans during the week of November 6 to 12.
