In north-central Iowa, 70-year-old Clinton Eden thought he was retired from farming until his son traveled to Afghanistan to teach farming techniques to war-stricken families. According to the Omaha World-Herald, Clinton gladly took over in his son's absence to maintain the family heritage, steering his John Deere battery operated tractor through the corn fields.
The family members make it a regular occasion to gather at the farm's shop and swap stories about Clinton's son Dwayne. Although he usually worked daily as a Sheriff's deputy, Dwayne's usual routine was to plant his crops well into the evening hours. He studied political science in college and joined the U.S. Army to pay for tuition, but still managed to become the man in charge of the family farm.
