Operation Green Light

The week of the Veterans Day holiday, Mobile County Commission joins local governments across the nation participating in Operation Green Light to shine a light of appreciation, hope, and support for our nation’s veterans. 

Mobile County will light the atrium of Mobile Government Plaza green at the stroke of 5 p.m., on Monday, Nov. 6. The atrium will be lit green through Sunday, Nov. 12. 

Some downtown businesses and other downtown Mobile locations – the Mobile Convention Center and GulfQuest – will be lit green for the week as well. The Mobile RSA buildings will be lit green for a portion of the week.

The Mobile County Commission approved a resolution supporting Operation Green Light on October 24, 2022 (see below) and Commissioners urge residents in all portions of Mobile County to participate


  • Picking up your green light (bulb) at Mobile County License Commissioner or Mobile Public Library locations (locations listed in graphic). 
  • Shining your green light the week of Nov. 6 through Nov. 12, 2023. Simply change one light bulb in your house to a green bulb. This can be an exterior light that neighbors and passersby see or an interior light that sparks a conversation with friends and family.
