A generation of warriors is coming home from Iraq and Afghanistan and faces a daunting transition back to civilian life. They need a new mission. At the same time, half of our farmers are nearing retirement age while the government is calling for one million new farmers in the next 10 years. It's a match made in heaven. This film follows the stories of visionary vets who are creating a new life in organic farming and ranching. These vets have found their new purpose: to protect America’s food security.
