The “Greenlight a Vet” program shows support for veterans by displaying a green light in your window or front porch. You can find more information on this program and how to participate at www.greenlightavet.com.
Project Bluelight: Displaying a ‘blue’ light is a way of showing appreciation for all those who serve in law enforcement (and to other first responders).
Project Bluelight began in 1988 in Philadelphia as a show of recognition for police officers who have died in the line of duty.
The Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Fraternal Order of Police explains on its web page, Project Bluelight has a threefold message:
–to memorialize the more than 19,000 men and women of law enforcement who have made the ultimate sacrifice or been disabled in the line of duty;
-to honor those who remain in law enforcement while knowing the dangers and challenges of their duty;
-to show appreciation for officers who remain on duty during the holidays, when many businesses are closed.
