Columbus Ga - Fort Benning, A Soldier Remembered

By
Real Estate Agent with ROSE ANNE ERICKSON REALTY, LLC. Columbus Ga, Ft Benning,

   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.   VFW Post 665 Color Guard final tribute

Klaus,

My mother is Danny's sister Lou ann.

She cries for Danny everytime I talk to her. She will Love seeing this, as she wishes she could have been there for him in the end. As she says: Danny was my Savior, he always took care of me.

We all appreciate everything your family has done for Danny and for our families.

Your Mother  (Tina) is an outstanding women, rich in Wisdom and Love.

Thank you!

Respectfully,

Our Uncle Dan was a great man.  My dad, Coy, is Danny's brother.  We lived in Iowa so we didn't see each other often.  I remember the last time we were all together.  It was at my mom and dad's house and four of the brothers got together.  Danny from Georgia, Coy from Iowa, Sparky from Texas, and Cecil from Nebraska.  As we sat around the kitchen table, the drinks flowed and so did the stories from their past.  It is a night I will never forget!  I know that when Dan reached the pearly gates he was met there by Coy, Cecil and their sister Wanda, with open arms and more stories to tell.

Nick, thank you for doing this.  It means the world to our family.

Sincerely,

Dana (Bishop) Woody, Newton, Iowa
