"U.S. Army Plans Green Warrior Convoy for 2013"

"WARREN, Mich. -- The U.S. Army's next generation of advanced combat vehicles will be road tested in a Green Warrior Convoy."

"Assistant Secretary of the Army for Installations, Energy and Environment Katherine Hammack made the announcement Wednesday during the opening of the Army's new Ground Systems Power and Energy Laboratory, or GSPEL, at the Detroit Arsenal, Warren, Michigan.

Hammack said that one year from today the Army will launch a Green Warrior Convoy of vehicles from Warren to Washington to road test technologies and systems developed at the Tank Automotive Research, Development and Engineering Center.

Rolling across the United States, the convoy will stop at schools, colleges, communities and military facilities to demonstrate the importance of energy improvements such as fuel cells, hybrid systems, battery technologies and alternative fuels.

The convoy's detailed route and the complement of vehicles within the convoy will be announced at a later date, said Hammack."
