Empowering Veterans to Thrive in Agriculture

On June 4th, 2016. Operation Engage America will hold their 3rd annual event at Camp Dodge, in Johnston Iowa.  OEA facilitates free resource fairs for military members, veterans, and their families.

This is a time that military members, veterans, and their family can meet one another, get some free food, a free haircut, and learn about the different services specifically designed for them through local organizations.

The event starts off with an introduction followed by two special speakers, Jathan Chicoine, a former Navy Seal, and Chris Anthony, a Vietnam Veteran.

Between approximately 11:30 a.m. and 2:00 p.m., guests are encouraged to walk around and get free information from the various vendors.

A special thanks to the Iowa National Guard, Sports Clips, Jethro’s BBQ, Tiefenthaler Meats, and Little Blackbird Bakery.
