Veterans for Clean Energy and National Security Roundtable
Friday, December 11, 2009 from 4:00 PM to 5:30 PM (EST)
Five United States veterans from Operation Free will be in Harrisonburg Friday, December 11, from 4-5:30pm at the Blue Nile Restaurant to share information related to their mission:
Secure America With Clean Energy.
The following veterans will give a presentation, following by question and answers with the audience.
- Matt Victoriano - US Marine, Operation Iraqi Freedom veteran
- Ed May - US Army, Vietnam veteran
- Glenn Kunkel - US Marine Sargent and two time Iraq vet
- Mark Starr - US Army Sargent and Iraq veteran
- Chuck Tyler - US Army combat veteran, grew up in Charlottesville
According to the Operation Free website, their core motivational principles are as follows:
- We need to get America running on clean energy.
- Clean energy reduces our dependence on oil.
- Oil ties our hands in foreign policy, funds terrorists, and entangles America with hostile regimes.
- Our Federal government is considering legislation that promotes clean energy incentives, and people need to understand why this helps our security.
- Getting energy that is CLEAN, DOMESTIC, CHEAP, and SAFE is going to take some real work, so we need to start now.
- It’s our patriotic duty to do everything we can to keep our nation safe and secure: clean energy is one of those efforts
The Community Mediation Center is coordinating this discussion to promote public dialogue, and does not advocate for the positions of the presenters.
