Welcome to USDA Military Families

USDA employees have traditionally had strong ties and have helped each other throughout the years. USDA Military Mom is part of that “USDA Family” and now wants to help others who have family members in the military.  There are many links with valuable information and the USDA support group is there to express your feelings or give ideas and suggestions.

USDA personnel visit Iraq. Read their stories.

There are many ways you can help the troops. You can adopt a platoon, send packages, donate money for care packages, etc.

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.

-- Teddy Roosevelt, iirc
