The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) does more than support food production – they support Veterans and Service members, too. This episode of Military to Civilian Transition Talk features USDA’s Military Veterans Agricultural Liaison, Bill Ashton, as he explains several helpful programs the USDA has to offer.
This includes an overview of their home ownership program, potential job opportunities, SNAP, and resources for those interested in farming.
