Gulf War Veteran Grateful for Education in the Navy

MARTINSBURG–For two-tour Gulf War veteran Travis Bishop, the military was the best education he ever had and he recommends any branch to others, especially those who may need some structure.

Bishop, who said he believes he was born to serve in the military, served in the United States Navy for six years–from 1989 to 1995– during the Gulf War. He was abord two destroyers: USS Preble (DDG-46) and USS Briscoe (DD-977). He was also on a small boat unit–assault craft unit 2.

During the Gulf War, the USS Briscoe crew was the “police of the Suez Canal,” Bishop said.
