Bishop to Join \'Crossing of America\' Tour
Blues goalie Ben Bishop will drive a flag-wrapped Jeep to Oliver C. Joseph in Belleville, IL on Tuesday to help raise awareness and funds for families of fallen U.S. soldiers.

After arriving at approximately 1 p.m., Bishop will be available for a meet and greet opportunity and will sign autographs for fans.

Oliver C. Joseph is located at 3795 State Rt 15, Belleville, IL 62226.

Bishop's drive is part of the Spirit of Liberty Foundation's Crossing of America Tour, which raises money for the families of soldiers who died while serving their country. The tour began on the USS Midway in San Diego Harbor and will travel more than 12,700 miles until it reaches the USS Intrepid in New York Harbor. The trip is expected to last 105 days.

Along the way, the flag-wrapped Jeeps are driven by high-profile celebrities, sports figures, government officials and family members of Fallen Heroes. The Jeeps are available for auction throughout the tour and the winning bidders will be announced at the tour's conclusion.
