America’s veterans come from all walks of life and from every corner of our great nation but they all share the common trait of having served both in times of peace and war. This Veterans Day we are pleased to highlight just one such person Tom, a U.S. Navy veteran and America’s Power fan, who is working to help power America’s grids. Like many of you Tom is a passionate supporter of coal-based electricity as it not only is critical to his job but also to his family’s way of life.

Tom’s Story

“I am a husband, father of three and U.S. Navy veteran who has worked in the power industry for 27 years. I currently work in a coal power plant with all the up to date environmental controls. We supply power to 675,000 homes and I am very proud of the work I do.My coworkers and I are very worried about EPA regulations. I work with 125 men and women who stand to lose good paying jobs. My monthly electric bill is affordable due to coal power. I can only imagine how high it will go if these new rules pass. This is the only work that I know and this will deeply hurt and impact my family and many, many others. Please think long and hard before doing this to the great men and women in the coal industry.”

Please join us in saying thank you to Tom and all of America’s veterans for the great service they provide our country
