Currently, oil prices, gas prices and production are impacting both the economy and the military. "In the past, military troops and personnel have been sent to provide support to help secure US assets," (Rogers, 2014, para. 7).

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
