From Battleground to Breaking Ground

Veterans are returning from battle and finding peace working the land. “In war, you see the worst sides of people, the worsts parts of humanity. So it feels good to see so much life, to see the cycle of life up close,” said Doug Havemann, a Texas native and Gulf War veteran. Havemann attended a workshop by the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service, who teamed with the Texas AgrAbility Project and the U.S. Department of Agriculture, to help returning vets learn about different aspects of farming and ranching. The workshops also help veterans and active duty personnel in obtaining employment and taking advantage of the therapeutic nature of agricultural work. Read more (Cowboys & Indians Magazine).
