Veterans in Beekeeping
-All Week in Honor of All Our War Veterans.
Image: circa. 1919: E. F. Phillips holds a queen bee while veterans and nurses look intently at frames of bees.

On the whole, Phillips was very positive about the U.S. Government’s efforts to train soldiers to become beekeepers. He felt that good commercial beekeepers were needed, and if returning veterans were not able to continue their previous careers, “I, for one, shall be glad to see them take up the work.” (Ref. Bees in America: How the Honey Bee Shaped a Nation. By Tammy Horn)
