Work Vessels for Vets Dedicates Tractor for Injured Army Veteran Saturday May 15th (Armed Forces Day) at Radical Roots Farm, Sterling, CT

Tractor 0535STERLING, CT.   On a glorious Armed Forces Day 2021, Work Vessels for Vets held a Tractor Dedication Ceremony to present a John Deere 89mp tractor to Army SPC Ryan Salvas, injured in Afghanistan during his tour in 2010-2011.  Salvas will use the tractor for his Radical Roots Farms in Sterling, CT where he raises heritage breeds of cattle (like the Scottish Highland pictured), pigs, sheep and fowl.  He is dedicated to paying it forward by establishing a nonprofit called ContemPLATE to help fellow veterans with PTSD, TBI and other injuries find the peace he finds through agritherapy. Scottish Highland fella

Congressman Joe Courtney, CT-2 spoke at the ceremony along with Commanders of the Canterbury, CT and Lyme/Old Lyme, CT VFWs who contributed to the purchase, to honor Salvas and the veteran-serving organizations and donors who made this award possible.  Army SPC Ryan Salvas is not letting his 90% medical disability rating stop him from pursuing his dream of raising heirloom breeds of cattle, sheep, pigs and chickens on his eastern Connecticut acreage.  With help from local VFWs in Lyme/Old Lyme and Canterbury, Work Vessels for Vets purchased the big tractor outfitted for the tasks, reducing the aggravation of his combat injuries.
