Green lights can honor both football and veterans

Tuesday, October 18, 2016

I just want to say that I love the green lighting posts supporting SLHS. As a proud ‘10 alumni, I couldn’t be prouder of our boys this season. It is also important to note that “green lighting” also means supporting military veterans. I’m also an OEF, Operation Enduring Freedom veteran having served in Afghanistan with the Iowa Army National Guard in 2011, currently still in. Many military vets transition into civilian lives and many people don’t know what to do or say to these veterans. By green lighting your home your saying “thanks” to a military veteran. My family will be green lighting our home to show support for these young men and the SLHS Tornadoes in all aspects. Couldn’t be prouder of our community!
