Shine a green light for veterans this Veterans Day

Established a year ago by the Walmart Foundation, the "Greenlight A Vet" encourages Americans to change a single light bulb to green - in their homes or on their porches - to show support for those who have served.

The gesture is created to remind us all about the valuable contributions made by the 22,000,000 veterans living in the U.S. Veteran's Day is Friday and Pearl Brothers True Value of Joplin is one local retailer with green lights in stock.

"We encourage all Razorbacks to participate in the Greenlight A Vet program to show our support for those who have served our country both at home and overseas", said Jeff Long, director of athletics.

The annual switch is part of the school's participation in the Greenlight A Vet program, which encourages people to change one light in a visible location in their home or office to green as a symbol of support and appreciation for veterans. On this day we honor our Veterans who served to preserve the freedoms that we enjoy.

The Razorbacks are partnering in the program in association with Walmart and empowering organizations for veterans including the Institute for Veterans and Military Families, Team Red, White and Blue, Team Rubicon, Hire Heroes USA and Blue Star Families.

Once our veterans return home, they are often more camouflaged than ever.

Walmart wants the nation to join the 2016 Greenlight a Vet campaign. "Greenlight" as a term is used by many to activate forward movement.
