Men and women who’ve worn the uniform of the United States view “energy security” through a different lens than the rest of us. To many of them the American energy revolution – with oil production projected to reach 10.7 million barrels per day this year, and the U.S. becoming a net natural gas exporter for the first time in nearly 60 years – means our armed forces are less likely to be deployed to faraway places to protect energy interests.
The point was underscored at a Vets4Energy event today at API. Two of the attendees were Shirley White and Belinda Jividen, president and 1st vice chair, respectively, of the West Virginia Gold Star Mothers – the organization of mothers who’ve lost sons or daughters in service of the U.S. armed forces.
