Hi, I'm active duty army stationed at Fort Bragg, NC. I'm transitioning out of the service this July. I would love to find a job in IL as a farm crew member. I feel the hands-on will help develop my experience. I am willing to relocate anywhere in Illinois near the city. Illinois was where I resided before I joined the service. I lived in the SW burbs near midway and am looking for a farm position where I can still be close to family. Thank you. Lisa
