Veterans Day 2023 Message from Executive Director, Emily Emmons

On this Veterans Day, I want to take a moment to express my deepest gratitude to all the brave men and women who have served and continue to serve our country. Your selfless dedication, sacrifice, and courage do not go unnoticed.

Today, we honor not just a date on the calendar, but the individuals behind the uniforms, each with a unique story of service and commitment. Your strength, resilience, and unwavering patriotism inspire us all.

To the veterans among us, thank you for your service, your sacrifice, and the example you set for us all. Your commitment to defending our freedoms has shaped the course of our nation’s history, and we owe you a debt of gratitude that can never truly be repaid.

This Veterans Day, let us pledge to support our veterans not just in words but through tangible actions that enable them to continue serving their communities through agriculture. By investing in their ongoing training and development, and purchasing from Veteran farmers and producers, we not only honor their past service but also contribute to a stronger, more resilient future for our agricultural industry.

With deep gratitude and commitment,

Emily Emmons
Executive Director
