Many Veterans Turn to Farming Post Duty

Vocational training programs have sprung up across the country for post-9/11 veterans, and some of them focus on agriculture as a way to help them re-adjust to civilian life. Veterans learn farm skills as they discover ways to get past the battlefield’s aftermath.

In honor of Veteran’s Day yesterday, below is a video news story Virginia Farm Bureau Communications Department’s Norm Hyde did on veteran farmers in Virginia Beach in May 2012. Thank you to all who have served and sacrificed for our beautiful country!
