Father, Soldier, Veteran, Farmer
Joe Villines, an Army Sgt. with the U.S. Army Reserve pours a bag of organic chicken feed into a newly constructed chicken pen on his farm in Cummings, Iowa, March 18, 2016. Villines manages to find the balance between his military obligations, his civilian career with the Department of Veterans Affairs, fatherhood, and a growing passion in rural farming. Joe is increasing his knowledge on traditional farming and becoming a man of the soil, and in the process giving back to his local community.(U.S. Army Reserve photo by Brian Godette, USARC Public Affairs)
