Starting Veterans Day, change one light to green and keep it glowing every day as an ongoing symbol of support for our veterans. Let this greenlight be visible so all will see you honor our vets. We might not be able to see who all our vets are, because they are usually camouflaged in with us. This greenlight will show hope, renewal and well-being for our vets.

Veterans Day is celebrated November 11 each year, but keeping a greenlight lit all year long to show your support for those men and women who helped to keep our freedoms in our great nation.

I personally plan to buy a greenlight for my front porch and change it to a greenlight. 

I first learned of Greenlight A Vet at the Newport Cinema’s in Newport, TN while waiting to watch the Woodlawn.

Make sure you take a picture of the greenlight lit and hashtag it on Social media!

I am also wanting to help show support by doing the text color of this blog entry to green

This is sponsored by Walmart. I went to three Walmarts to find the LED Greenlight, so it uses less electricity. All out of stock. I checked mobile app and none close by had any. They had other colors in LED (Blue, Orange and Pink to name a few). Plus they had the green in the halogen and in incandescent bulbs, but I didn’t want those. I even check several hardware stores and several other retail stores and they either didn’t sell colored lights or even LED lights. Honestly if Walmart was to support this, you’d think they would have plenty of green light bulbs in stock. 

Since Walmart couldn’t give me answers, I went to the manufacturer and asked them about the RLA155GRN bulbs, Green LED. They replied with with …

Unfortunately this bulb is on back order and we have none available. We are looking at a 6 to 8 lead time before more will be available.

So it looks like it might be awhile. I’ve noticed on Walmart app it shows available at a few locations, but when I call they claim they don’t have any. The app the day before showed same location out of stock. 

Update, November 24, 2015 and a local Walmart finally has the Green LED light in stock. I’ve been checking frequently as well.

  1. Thank you for this blog post. The Greenlight A Vet team, of which I am a member, appreciates the support. I know that the demand has been high at Walmart so what you are seeing with an out of stock situation is an example the great participation that is happening. Thanks. -tom

  2. greenlightavet You are very welcome. Yes, the demand is very high and it seems even the warehouse and suppliers are out of them too. I would have thought Walmart would have prepared better for the higher demand. It does make it frustrating to try to find an LED one, since I’d say most Americans are in boots similar to mine. Want to save money where they can including electricity and using LED lights help with that. I hope that I start to see tons of green lights since area places are sold out as Walmart claims. Talking to a guy at Home Depot, blue lights done the same thing for them awhile back for support for Police Officers and Autism. Does anyone actually know when they will be back in stock again? The Walmart I went to today, gave me generic answer they give everyone its on order. Thanks for the comment.
