Vets in Agriculture


CHARLESTON, W.Va. — West Virginia has been awarded a $400,000 federal grant to provide agriculture training for military Veterans.

The state Department of Agriculture says in a news release the grant from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs aims to improve Veterans' health.

The statement says the Hershel "Woody" Williams VA Medical Center in Huntington will train participants to pursue agricultural vocations while addressing their behavioral and mental health needs.

Department of Agriculture staff will provide production, business and market planning for the program.

West Virginia Veterans and Warriors to Agriculture program coordinator James McCormick says he wants the state to take the lead on agricultural initiatives for Veterans.
