Each year, thousands of veterans leave service and can find a new career path in the agricultural sector. The USDA can help veterans transition into agriculture by providing loans for purchasing or leasing land. The USDA has also recently partnered with SCORE to provide mentorship programs to veterans and beginning farmers. Army veterans Tom and Anita Roberson and Navy veteran Lenny Miles, Jr. have found success in careers as farmers through the help of the USDA. There are other career opportunities in the agriculture sector available to veterans as well.
