MO Veterans Fight Climate Change To Ensure Security

January 19, 2010

ST. LOUIS, Mo. - Missouri veterans continue to fight for a secure America - this time, with a campaign to raise awareness about the connections between climate change and national security. They'll speak out when the Operation Free bus tour rolls into the Show-Me State today. Operation Free is a veteran's group that supports America taking a more active role in cleaning up the environment.

Missourian Billy Froeschner is a member of the group and a war veteran who served in Iraq. He says the Department of Defense, the C.I.A and other military analysts agree that the nation's dependence on foreign oil is a national security threat.

"We pay money that ends up with bad people who dislike us, who use that money against us."

Froeschner says the "Clean Jobs and American Power Act" now under consideration in the U.S. Senate may provide the innovation needed to move toward clean energy.

"Largely, we look at climate change legislation as a threat, but we need to look at it as an opportunity."

The bus tour travels throughout Missouri this week, making stops in eight cities and wrapping up in Kansas City. The locations are available at the group's web site,
