AFR LEAD Golf Tournament

AFR LEAD Program Holds Golf Tournament to Support Farmer Veteran Coalition

The second annual AFR LEAD golf tournament is scheduled for Thursday, August 17, 2017 at Cherokee Hills Golf Course, Catoosa, Oklahoma. All proceeds will go to support the Farmer Veteran Coalition.
"This is a great event supporting our military and helping our nation's farmers and ranchers," Terry Detrick, AFR president, said. The AFR LEAD program is a diverse, flexible and innovative program to assist in the needs of growing Oklahoma communities through informed leaders. "By hosting this golf tournament, we are providing leadership opportunities for our LEAD participants and we are supporting a worthy cause," Bailey Kliewer, AFR LEAD state council chair, said.
The Farmer Veteran Coalition was started in 2007 as a way to create jobs on farms for military veterans returning from deployment. National Farmers Union and Farm Credit Council are among the groups supporting the coalition, which is based in Davis, CA. The coalition has more than 4,500 veteran members. According the coalition's website, 72 percent have post 9-11 service, 20 percent are ethnic minorities, 16 percent are women and a staggering 59 percent have service connected disabilities. Quoting directly from the FVC website: "Our vision of the future is an organization that will be around for decades, in every state and continuing to unite the agricultural sector - government, education, private industry, conventional and alternative farming and the veterans themselves. It will no longer be important to know how and when we began, but that we will be there, offering assistance to all those who chose to serve their country twice - once by defending it and once by feeding it."
