Ask almost any returning war veteran and they'll tell you that the hardest part of the war is not going, it's coming home. The toll it takes on soldiers is often more debilitating to the body and mind than the combat they faced. Many return with scars and baggage that makes it even harder for them to find gainful employment. Fortunately, organizations are helping connect veterans with good jobs and new careers that can literally change and save the lives of these heroes. The Farmer Veteran Coalition is one such organization with a simple mission: to mobilize veterans to feed America by cultivating a new generation of farmers and food leaders. In this episode, Joe meets one veteran-turned-farmer and shares the story of how his life and that of his family went from hopeless to thriving, thanks to the Coalition connection.
