Bridging War & Hope


During my husband’s deployment, I came in contact with Luke Heikkila, a producer for Twin Cities Public Television.  Luke embedded with the Minnesota National Guard Agribusiness Development Team in Zabul Province Afghanistan for a few weeks in order to tell their story of the great work they have done in helping the Afghan farmers and the Afghan people.
Below is the link to Luke’s documentary which can be watched in half an hour and really provides a great perspective on the work our soldiers are doing on these teams and the goals of their missions.  I hope you take time to watch and thank you to all our military members for your service to our Country!
