RMVC RESTORATION PROJECT

    This 1959 Southern Coach was put into service at Camp Lejeune in 1959 and saw many years of service.  It was later sold to Wilks Community College in western North Carolina who changed the seats for long road trips.  From there it was purchased by a private owner in Virginia to become a motor home, but was never converted.  It was donated by the owner to Commonwealth Coach & Trolley Museum in the fall of 2009.  With very little effort, it started up and drove about 25 miles to the CC & T bus barn.  It has a Detroit 671 engine with a five speed, manual transmission.

    This coach is being restored with the help of RMVC members. The mission is to give veterans a ride in parades and to events.  The exterior color will be Marine Green if we can find the paint. Interested in helping with the restoration or contributing?

D-DAY PARADE 2016


ROANOKE MILITARY VEHICLE CLUB STORMS THE MDA SHOW

FROM SGT STEVE RORAGEN, USA
The MDA Car Show has Officially declared "The Roanoke Military Vehicle Club had The Best Display in the History of The MDA Car Show" WOW you guys worked hard for this Title. We did it. We are second to none. MDA invited us back next year in a premier spot. R.M.V.C. will have opening ceremonies with the Pledge to The United Sates of America and end with taps for our departed. MDA Car Show is anticipating the return of The Roanoke Military Vehicle Club 2017. The clubs mascot POWMIA gave it her all at the show with Drill & Ceramonies commands. The club made new contacts for parts, vehicles and comrades in arms.  Good Men are best never let them rest until the good is best and the betters best. Roanoke Military Vehicle Club, The Best.


The TRAVELING VIETNAM MEMORIAL WALL was at The V.A.M.C. Sept 16, to Sept. 20, 2015. Colonel John Miller recruited The Roanoke Military Vehicle Club to take a 4 hour shift to watch the wall on September 19,2015 from 06:00 to 10:00. That meant getting up around 04:00 for Norman Altizer, Jay Kincanon, Phil Moore, Peter Boitnott and Howard Austin. Another Mission Accomplished by R.M.V.C. for our fellow Veterans.


March 3-5, 2017 R.M.V.C. Returned to The MDA Car Show and had a USO Show. R.M.V.C. Stoll the show again. 


6-8 FEB 2015 ROANOKE GUN SHOW - BERGULAND CENTER

 Ron Knuppel set up w/ his 1951 M-38 Willey. He also included an M-2 50 Cal Machine Gun, a M-1 Garand, M-1 Paratrooper Carbine, Radio Equipped, Snorkel Kit, Helmet, Bags, First Aid kit, 1952 Trailer Signage, etc. To say his display was a hit is an understatement! The Club's Therapy Dog 'POWMIA' was also a huge hit wearing her camouflaged custom made Vest of Honor. POWMIA definitely added more awe to the display.
