Catawba County Justice Center Illuminated in Green in Support of Veterans During 'Operation Green Light'
Published: November 07, 2022
The Catawba County Justice Center in Newton will be illuminated in green November 7-13, 2022, as part of Operation Green Light, a new nationwide initiative supported by the North Carolina Association of County Commissioners, the National Association of Counties and the National Association of County Veteran Service Officers.
Operation Green Light’s mission is to show support for veterans of all military conflicts. The program is intended to help raise awareness about the unique challenges faced by many veterans and their families and connect them with the resources available at the county, state, and federal level to assist them.
Veterans who reside in Catawba County can connect with many of these resources through the Catawba County Veteran Services office, which is located in the Catawba County Justice Center. The office assists veterans and their dependents with filing Veterans Administration claims for benefits and services. Appointments are required and can be made by calling (828) 465-8255.
