Chester County Commissioners Marian Moskowitz, Josh Maxwell and Michelle Kichline recently recognized “Operation Green Light,” a new initiative supporting veterans introduced by the County Commissioners Association of Pennsylvania and the National Association of Counties.

 In addition to presenting a proclamation to County Director of Veterans Services Susan Price, the County is illuminating the façade of the Chester County Historic Courthouse in green from November 7 to 13.

Operation Green Light’s mission is to show support for veterans of all military conflicts, as well as raise awareness about the unique challenges faced by many veterans and their families, and the resources that are available to assist them.

“By shining a green light, we are expressing our profound gratitude for the sacrifices and contributions our veterans and their families made on the battlefield and at home,” said Susan Price, director of Chester County’s Department of Veterans Affairs. 

 “Chester County’s 24,000-plus veterans deserve our support, and I encourage everyone who lives here to also display a green light, to show our veterans and their families that they are seen and appreciated.”

Chester County Veterans Affairs provides benefit information and application services to all veterans, their spouses, and dependents in Chester County, helping them to receive the benefits they are entitled to under county, state, and federal laws.  

The department also maintains Chester County’s veteran graves registration record, distributes flags and military grave markers, and supports the veteran mentorship program for Chester County’s veteran’s treatment court program.  

Additional county services for veterans include the recording of military discharges by the Chester County Recorder of Deeds Office, which safeguards discharge documents in the event of loss, misplacement or natural disaster, and a Veteran ID program offering discounts to businesses throughout Chester County.
