Do You Know About GREEN LIGHT FOR THE VETERANS

Well, you all KNOW how much
FUN I make of WALMART.
Let me bow my head in shame.
Shame, Shame,Shame.

Do you know they have launched a program
for Veterans?
It's called  the
GREEN LIGHT FOR VETS

 I know I am a little late getting this on my blog
because 
TOMORROW is VETERAN'S DAY!

Here is what Walmart is doing!

At its core, the project is calling on Americans from coast to coast to display green lights at their homes and workplaces on Nov. 11, a symbolic show of gratitude for the service and sacrifices made by more than 2.5 million military families since the nation went to war in 2001. More broadly, it's calling attention to several veterans advocacy groups, including the Institute for Veterans and Military Families at Syracuse University, Team Rubicon and Blue Star Families.
 “A veteran can sit for an average of twenty-two weeks in unemployment between their last military paycheck and a new job ... and they just need to know there is a support network out there for them."
Walmart, under its “Welcome Home Commitment” program, has pledged to hire 250,000 veterans by 2020. The company recently hired its 100,000th vet, and has promoted 9,000 since 2013, according to its website. Since 2011, the company's foundation has pledged more than $40 million to veterans groups that provide job training, transition help and education

So-If you want to put a smile
on a VET'S FACE tomorrow
POP OUT AND 
BUY ONE OF THESE TODAY
and turn that baby on 
for the whole day and night tomorrow.

l'll be getting mine as soon as I am

done pushing the old boys around at the
VA TODAY!

Oh- Wait---
Apparently SOMEONE got 
the wrong message...
They thought they 
were supposed to dress up
LIKE A LIGHT BULB
No! That is NOT me-
thanks for asking!

UMMM---those shoes are a 
NO with outfit....just sayin'......

I hope none of YOU make 
that same fashion mistake!
Now-hurry- RUN to WALMART
and buy a green light bulb.
You'll be glad you did!

  4. In spite of the first few lines of this post, I knew you would not fail us by forgetting to show another lovely outfit from Walmart!! Some liberals call out the Waltons for having so much wealth, but it's good to see how they're using their wealth to employ veterans.

  5. Our neighbor put green lights on their porch right after halloween. I told David that they were getting the head start on christmas. He asked them why they put up only green lights. They told him it was for the veterans. My Husband is a Veteran and he never heard of this, than we saw the commercial from Walmart. Nice thing to do, but they could let Veterans have the green lights for free. I try to look at the good side, but they are making money selling the green lights. I still think it is a good idea and that they are going to hire more Veterans.

  21. Thank you for sharing the info. I was just in the light bulb section of Wal*Mart and missed it.

  22. I've seen their promotional spots on television and thought it was such a great idea. I bet this will catch on and it will grow year by year.

    Well done Walmart AND Diana!

  32. It's nice of them to do it, but I still hate them. Awful, aren't I? My son is in the military, so I'll just tell him I love him ;)

    What in the holy... I don't understand the shoppers there at all! LOL

  33. I don't shop at Wal-Mart. However, this is a very good idea. Wonder if you can find green bulbs from any place, other than Wal-Mart?

    ReplyDelete
  34. I have not heard of this. I'm an avid Walmart shopper too. I hope that person wearing green was dressed for Halloween.

  35. Hi Diana, This is a great thing from Walmart to honor our Vets this way. I knew about this for some time and so glad they are stepping up like this. Thanks for sharing. Have a great night. xo

  39. I don't have a green light but I am thankful for everyone that has protected my country for me! We have a son in the navy. Nancy

  40. I heard them talking about this on the radio the other day. We have l.e.d. lights on the outside of our home that the bulbs cannot be changed in, darn...I think this is a great idea though.
    22 weeks in unemployment, that is just not right! There is no greater sacrifice then what these men and women do, they deserve so much more then they get when they get out!
    I don't know what it is with the Wal-Mart outfits - but I sure hope that green super hero was dressed for Halloween! ;)
    Have a wonderful Wednesday friend!

  42. Bless you for volunteering each week at the VA, Diana! I know you must make so many people's day there. I didn't know about the green light thing either. Better green that red, right?!:)

  43. That's really cool. Thanks for sharing. Now, you either have the strangest Walmart around or just live in a place with lots of goofy people. That outfit takes the cake. Omg, too funny.
