A-State 'Greenlights' tower to support veterans

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - An unmistakable tower on the campus of Arkansas State University was used as a beacon for hope and support of military veterans.

On Veterans Day A-State lit the Dean B. Ellis Library tower green to honor all veterans.

A video showing the lighting was uploaded to Vimeo by A-State. It features Arkansas State University Cadet Joshua Coggins of the Red Wolf ROTC Battalion playing "Taps".

You may be seeing more green lights around town as a way to "Greenlight a Vet."

The campaign is a way to "establish visible national support for our veterans by changing one light to green," according to GreenlightaVet.com.
