Danny M. Bishop, 1SG U.S. Army Retired was laid to rest at the Fort Benning Main Post Cemetery. Graveside services with Military Honors were held on a blustery rainy morning and just about ten minutes prior to the beginning of the service the rain stopped. Tears flowed as Taps sounded. A very professional and sympathetic Military Detail fired three volleys and gave a final salute to an old soldier.
Honoring Danny Bishop were family and friends, members and the Color Guard of VFW Post 665, where Danny was an active member and former Commander. Members of the American Legion Post 35 attended, as well as representatives of the Elks Lodge 111. Danny Bishop was a kind gentle man and an exemplary soldier. This former POW served in WWII, the Korean Conflict, and Vietnam. I will remember Danny M. Bishop for the rest of my days.
