Career Army SFC Jimenez awarded equipment for beekeeping

 2022 JIMENEZ with BCS tractor web

SEPTEMBER 14, 2022    JM “Joey” JIMENEZ, US Army is a 25-year Army retiree with 100% service-connected disability rating following combat tours in Bosnia, Macedonia, Saudi Arabia and beyond.  He earned 2 Bronze Stars during his long career in the service.

SFC Jimenez received a grant of $7500 for equipment from Work Vessels for Vets for his B’s Bees farm in Spotsylvania, Virginia.  He prepared for his new business by training with several of our partners, including Boots to Business, Farmer Veteran Coalition and the West Virginia Veterans and Warriors Agriculture program run by Captain James McCormick, past president of the National Military Order of the Purple Heart..

SFC Jimenez’s 8 acre farm is a pollinator’s heaven, resplendent with clover, goldenrod, wild blackberry and other pollen rich food for bees.  B’s for Bees also raises butterflies to add to the pollination need in America. 

The BCS walk-behind tractor and bush hog and other attachments awarded by Work Vessels for Vets for SFC Jimenez is the perfect equipment to accommodates his limitations due to injuries so he can meet essential needs for his beekeeping business. 

When the back-ordered equipment was delivered this week, he wrote:

“I accomplished more today than I have in a long time.  The hand tools were amazing (game changers), the machinery is effortless.  Thank you, Work Vessels for Vets!”  Joey Jimenez

Work Vessels for Vets is a volunteer-run national charity with the mission to equip America’s injured veterans with the tools they need to start a business or pursue career training after military service.  Since 2008, WVFV has awarded over 2500 veterans in all 50 states with more than $3.5 million worth of equipment for success.  These new veteran-entrepreneurs have gone on to create hundreds of job and contribute over $15million to the economy.
