Our youngest son Jon has worked for the Soil Conservation Service since his college days as a Student Trainee. He has been in the Washington, D.C. office for 20 years after having worked in several locations during his earlier years. His many activities now include a review of the history of the Agency which began as the Soil Erosion Service in the Department of Interior under the leadership of Hugh H. Bennett. In 1935 it was transferred to Agriculture as the Soil Conservation Service. The name was changed a few years ago to the Natural Resources Conservation Service. It is not unusual for multi family members to have careers in the Agency. I worked for 32 years as did my brother-in-law. My Brother Don is shown in this picture with the top Officials of the Agency while on a tour of Watershed projects in the Syracuse, NE, area where he was stationed. This picture will be an important part of our Vrana Family Conservation story.
