If You See A Green Porch Light In Cedar Rapids, Don’t Freak Out
I was taking a walk through my neighborhood one evening and noticed something strange lighting up my neighbors' house. Their porch lights were lit up green. At first, I thought it was some old Halloween decor or lighting that they have yet to take down.
Colors usually hold important meaning. Whether it be purple paint indicating private property or blue pumpkins showing support for children on the autism spectrum; colors are good indicators and give people specific heads up about things.
As previously reported the purple paint rule ia very significant for landowners,
"The Purple Paint Law gives landowners the option of marking trees or posts to prevent trespassing. One of the biggest benefits of the purple paint being used for no trespassing is that, unlike signs that can be removed or destroyed, the purple paint is pretty permanent."
A green porch light is meant to express support for U.S. military veterans. During this time of year, around Veterans Day, you are sure to see this quite a bit around the area right now. Also, it also is very common to see porches illuminated like this around Memorial Day.
This campaign, called Greenlight A Vet, started in 2013 with Walmart. Walmart's Veterans Welcome Home Commitment campaign helped secure job offers to veterans who were honorably discharged.
There was an ad campaign that was a part of this, that encouraged people to make a porch light green to show support for those who have served. After that, it sort of took off, so now people all across the country are paying tribute to our brave veterans
