Farmer Veteran Coalition wrote -
The mission of the Farmer Veteran Coalition is to mobilize veterans to feed America.
We cultivate a new generation of farmers and food leaders, and develop viable employment and meaningful careers through the collaboration of the farming and military communities.
We aspire to lead the national effort connecting veterans to agriculture.
We believe that veterans possess the unique skills and character needed to strengthen rural communities and create sustainable food systems for all.
We believe that food production offers purpose, opportunity, and physical and psychological benefits.
