About

How We Started

In 2020, a group of Veterans met at the MOSES Conference in LaCrosse, Wisconsin.  They talked about the National Organization, Farmer Veteran Coalition, and wondered why there wasn’t a Wisconsin Chapter.  Some writing on a napkin and a sharing of ideas later, Joe Koch had the beginnings of the new chapter.  In May 2021, the Chapter was finally enacted and the Executive Board started working on programs with the goal of helping Wisconsin farmer Veterans.
