Louis E. Bees

LIEUTENANT L. E. BEES, the youngest son of Mr. and Mrs. John Bees, was born in this city April 17th, 1896, and when twenty-two years of age was called into the service of his country in the draft of July 25th, being sent immediately to Camp Gordon, Atlanta, Ga., where he remained during the time he was in the service. He was assigned to 38th Co., 10 Tr. Bu., 157 D. B., but owing to his desire and ability to advance was chosen from several thousand men as one of the few to be transferred to the Central Officers Training School at the same camp, which occurred September 1st, of this year. Two months was spent at the officer training school and he was commissioned Second Lieutenant November 30th, and given his honorable discharge the same day, to await further orders. Upon being mustered out he immediately returned to this city, arriving here December 2nd. Louis graduated from the local high school with the class of 1913, and a year later entered the University at Iowa City, where he was making very rapid progress at the time of his being called. He willingly gave up the school work to enter the army. The mother of these two boys can well be proud of them.
