"I was with him on December 31, 2005, the night before he died. He was showing me some specifics about Bradley tanks and their ammunition. He was a kind man, well liked by the soldiers! I know very personally how it impacted one of his troops, who was there when he died. It was heart-wrenching! But his life and death are of great worth, for it has taught us what's most important in life...the relationships we have with one another!"

"As a member of the Ohio Patriot Guard Riders, I had the privilege of assisting the KY Riders on 7.4.09 as they rode over 1100 miles to honor the fallen soldiers from KY. I was present at the service in Newport, KY where I had the honor of meeting SFC Bishop's father. Mr. Bishop presented me with a commemorative coin honoring Jason. I want him to know that since then, I have gone nowhere without that coin in my pocket. I have been on over 50 PGR missions since that time, and at each one I remember SFC Bishop."
