The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the Department of Defense (DoD) have announced a joint education effort that integrates agriculture into career training and counseling programs for veterans. This expanded collaboration will help to ensure that returning servicemembers know that there are a wide variety of loans, grants, training and technical assistance for veterans who are interested in a career in agriculture, no matter their experience level. More than 5 million veterans live in rural areas. For more information and to get started, visit the USDA Veterans in Agriculture website at www.nal.usda.gov/veteran-farmers.
