WASHINGTON, D.C. — In recognition of Veterans Day this Saturday, November 11, Growth Energy extends our deepest gratitude to the men and women who serve our nation in the United States Armed Forces.

“Our industry is proud to say that 19 percent of our workforce is comprised of veterans, and today Growth Energy salutes all of the men and women who have served in the United States Armed Forces,” Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor said.

“Each and every veteran has played a direct role in protecting our freedoms, rights, and way of life, and today, we want to take the time to thank all who have served.

“Our members take great pride in producing homegrown biofuels like ethanol that promote American national and energy security by reducing foreign oil imports from hostile nations. The biofuels industry is one of the most patriotic that you will find in this country. I know I speak for all of our membership when I offer my sincerest thank you to the men and women who have served in our military.”
