Meet Bob Tanner...Former US Marine and now a Volt Owner.

Last updated 5 years ago

There are millions of veterans and active duty personnel who have taken advantage of the General Motors Military Discount, which extends to Chevrolet, Buick and GMC. 

Meet Bob Tanner. Bob is a a civilian product manager at the Army Contracting Command at Fort Dix, N.J. Bob has also done two tours in Iraq as a US Marine, who had his first day of boot camp on September 11th, 2001. 

Bob is also the proud owner of the Chevy Volt, which he leased. He traded in his old car in December, and has since cut his fuel costs by two-thirds. Spending almost $300.00 a month before, he now spends less than $100.00: $50.00 on actual gas and $40.00 on electricity. Over the first 3,160 miles he has averaged almost 95MPG. 

"I also love that when I'm in full electric mode, it's so quiet - I call it my vehicular ninja. And the way the cockpit is set up; I feel as though I'm inside my own video game. said Tanner about his Volt. 

Bob is another example of soldiers, both current and former as well as their families using their military discount to purchase the GM Vehicle of their dreams. The GM Military Discount is the most generous in the industry. Outside of the discount: GM Employs nearly 5,000 veterans, and supports such programs as Cell Phones for Soldiers, Achilles Freedom Team of Wound Veterans, the Fallen and Wounded Soldiers Fund  and many others. 

To find out how you can make your military discount work for you and your family, please e-mail us at or give us a call at 330-SWEENEY.
