As Kentucky’s Agriculture Commissioner, I was proud to establish two new programs that have helped Kentucky’s heroes transition back into the private sector following their military service.  The Homegrown by Heroes and the Kentucky Proud Jobs for Vets initiatives have helped Kentucky veterans find good jobs in agriculture and have helped veterans who farm market their unique products to consumers.   In Congress, I will continue my work on behalf of veterans by advocating for more job opportunities for these heroes and by holding the Department of Veterans Affairs feet to the fire.   I will make it a top priority to helping Kentucky veterans navigate the federal bureaucracy to ensure they receive the benefits they deserve and were promised.
