How to Take Care of Our Veterans

There comes a time when a country has to debate when, if, and whether it should go to war. When it eventually happens, and the war is on, some men and women put their lives on the line to protect the integrity of the country by serving in the military. Talking of war, the United States has had a fair share of the same, since the founding of the nation through rebellion.

Veterans in Agriculture | Their Healing is Crucial for Our Future

A veteran returns home from war weary, sometimes shattered and frayed. Protecting our interests in foreign lands requires focus and tenacity with a different set of rules. Re-entering civilian life can be difficult because the same rules just don’t apply. A great shift must be facilitated in order to bring the veteran to a place of peace and a meaningful return to life without combat. So too does our agriculture require a shift away from the paradigm of combating the soil, the weeds, and the pests.
