Colonel Dick Averitt, U.S. Marine Corps

Averitt flew helicopters in Vietnam, remained on active duty for 9 years, and then went into the reserves for 26 years of service.

The Averitts created a family homestead for their children and grandchildren in four homes on property near Spruce Creek in Nelson County. The ACP will cross their property, pass within 300 feet of two homes, and put all the homes in danger. If the ACP is built, the Averitts are unwilling to put their children at risk and will abandon their dreams.

On Veterans Day remember to honor America’s veterans for defending our country and our freedoms and for their willingness to sacrifice all for our principles.

These men and women had our backs. Now let’s stand up for them.

Don’t let a private corporation take their land and trample their rights for private gain.

Say NO to the Atlantic Coast Pipeline!
