Bishop Participates in Crossing of America
At 6-foot-7, Blues goaltender Ben Bishop usually stands out in a crowd.

On Tuesday, he was impossible to miss while driving.

Bishop drove a Jeep wrapped in an American Flag from Soldier's Memorial in downtown St. Louis to Oliver C. Joseph in Belleville, IL to help raise awareness and funds for families of fallen soldiers.

His drive was part of the Spirit of Liberty Foundation's Crossing of America Tour, which began on the USS Midway in San Diego Harbor and has continued across the country.

After arriving at Oliver C. Joseph, Bishop posed for photos and signed autographs for fans and supporters of the event.

The tour features two flag-wrapped Jeeps, each of which are driven by high-profile celebrities, sports figures, government officials, veterans, POWs, Medal of Honor recipients or families of soldiers who were wounded or died for their country.

The Jeeps will travel more than 12,700 miles over the 105-day trek across the United States, which ends on Sept. 8 on the deck of the USS Intrepid in New York Harbor.

People who wish to donate can make an online donation, sponsor a mile, make a per-mile donation or place a bid on one of the Jeeps in the tour.

All proceeds will be donated to Wounded Warriors and the Families of Fallen Heroes.
