Light a green light
Operation Green Light:  As Veterans Day approaches on Friday, November  11, Montgomery County is preparing to join the national “Operation Green Light” salute to veterans. Montgomery County Executive Marc Elrich and the County Council are supporting the effort to join Operation Green Light, a program sponsored by the National Association of Counties to honor those who have made immeasurable sacrifices to preserve freedom. The program asks for displays of a green light, from November  7 through November 13, in a window of businesses or residences to honor veterans. From November  7 through November 13, Montgomery County’s Memorial Plaza, which is located adjacent to the County Executive Building at 101 Monroe St. in Rockville, will be lit with green lights. More information about Operation Green Light is available at  www.naco.org/blog/counties-take-action-participate-operation-green-light-veterans

The Montgomery County Commission on Veterans Affairs was established by County legislation in 2008 with the goal of the Commission to provide advice to the Executive and Council on the status of programs and services related to the needs of Veterans.  Veterans have made an important contribution to the community by their service in the Armed Forces of this Nation, and Montgomery County is committed to showing its commitment and support for all veterans and their families.

The Commission is composed of sixteen voting members and one non-voting member who serve in a volunteer capacity.  Members are appointed by the County Executive and confirmed by the County Council. The Commission includes:

  • Nine (9) Veterans who are a member of a veterans group
  • Four (4) General Public
  • Three (3) Ex-Officio Members (Department of Health and Human Services, the Office of the County Executive, and Montgomery College)
  • One (1) Non-Voting Congressional Representative
