Vermont continues to promote the Farmer Veteran Coalition. Most recently, at the National Training Workshop in Fort Collins, Colorado, Jon Turner and Tom Younkman both made presentations about the FVC. Jon joined the other three state chapter chairmen who shared their experiences with their state chapters. Tom shared how Vermont AgrAbility has worked with the FVC to get the state chapter in place and is working with individual veterans through the program.VT's Jon Turner and Lanon Baccam, USDA Deputy Under Secretary for Farm and Foreign Ag Services and Military Veterans Ag Liaison at NTW
