“Any nation that does not honor its heroes will not long endure.”- Abraham Lincoln
Like all holidays this year, Veteran’s Day is bound to be different too. I admit it is hard; Memories of attending the parade with my kids, supporting the heroes and the whole spirit of the event is still fresh in my mind.
Several Non- Profit organizations across the country are dedicated to providing support for Vets who return from the battleground, and one such incredible organization is Farmer Veteran Coalition, which helps vets begin and sustain their farming journey.
