OPERATION GREEN LIGHT for VETERANS
NOVEMBER 1-19 – Please consider illuminating your front porch, office window or buildings green to show support and appreciation for veterans. And, hopefully that green light will initiate conversations that allow us all to refer veterans and their families to the Hancock County Veterans Service Office. We like to meet with veterans at least once every three years because 1) their health may change, 2) the laws may change, and 3) their financial situation may change and all of those things can impact the benefits a veteran or surviving dependent may be eligible for from local, state and federal resources.
