Lake County News Sun: “Let freedom ring on Wadsworth farm”

Freedom Farm For Vets was profiled by the Lake County News Sun this week. Special thanks to Tina Johansson and photographer Thomas Delany Jr. for taking the time to share our story.

“The owner of a farm at 13155 W. Hart St., is seeking funds to transform the property into a rehabilitation haven for veterans.

John Ress of Trevor, Wis., president of Freedom Farm for Vets, said his idea for the program to help bring a stress-free environment where veterans can come, has been in the works for several years. He hopes to have his Freedom Farm open April 1.

Ress wants to focus on helping soldiers who suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder, inspired by what his grandfather John Balen, Sr. did for his own sons who went off to war, including his uncle, Mike, who served in two major battles during World War II and came home ‘shell-shocked,’ he said.”
