The Veteran’s Green Bus, a green way to help educate and train veterans in green technology. We suffered a fire in the under carriage of the bus in Roanoke, Virginia. The fire damaged the bus’ electrical system.  

Veterans Green Bus, a 1980 Crown Coach was converted to run on biodiesel and used cooking oil.  The bus spent four months in Rockaway Beach, NY serving as a command center for relief efforts for Superstorm Sandy.

The crew of veterans were there when the storm victims needed them. Now it is your turn to support the Veterans Green Bus mission to demonstrate alternative fuel technology and provide disaster response when needed.

Roanoke Times columnist Dan Casey detailed Soderberg’s dilemma on March 25th.  Read the story here:Below are links for the Veteran’s Green Bus website and their Facebook page. I have also included their mission statement and a walking otur done by Soderberg when he tarted the conversion. 

Our mission is to demonstrate sustainable energy solutions for disaster response and rebuilding efforts using a self contained vehicle. Our goals are to expand veterans awareness and access to community service opportunities, job training and business opportunities in these industries.
