Celebrate Independence Day by supporting the most sustainable resource our veterans who are working on sustainable energy solutions for disaster relief. It will mean more to us than blowing up fireworks in our name and you will get way more bag for your buck.

Donating to the Veterans Green Bus makes the statement that you're not satisfied with celebrating past victories and our independence needs to be defended with more then firecrackers.

Our a non profit transports veterans volunteers tools and supplies to and from natural disasters using used cooking oil and solar power. We also demonstrate how our bus works to support disaster relief efforts, promote the development of community emergency response teams and how sustainable energy solutions can be applied to rebuilding efforts and veteran job training.

Kent's Custom Diesel will be done with their work tomorrow. We will be ready to get the bus on the road this weekend.  We have raised about half of the $3000 total bill so far.

We plan on visiting several veteran run farms in Oregon and California over the next several weeks to show how these same solutions can work to make their businesses more sustainable. We're  also going to visit solar energy installation businesses, biodiesel plants and WVO conversion companies to document where the industry is going.

One such company is we met their representative at Netroots and have entered into a partnership that can generate support funding for the Veterans Green Bus. When friends of the Veterans Green Bus sign up to lease solar energy solutions for their home they put no money down and get a rebate of $750 and we get $750 once the system is installed.

When the next hurricane hits the we will use the bus to deliver volunteer veterans, tools and supplies and setting a forward operating base to help recover and rebuild Independently with unsustainable resources.

Thank you

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
