Someone asked us to check into the military background of Georgia’s 2d District representative to Congress, Sanford Bishop – that’s the district which contains Fort Benning, GA. Here is how the Congressman remembers his career;
Bishop graduated from Morehouse College in 1968 and from Emory University Law School in 1971. He served in the U.S. Army from 1969 to 1971; completed basic training at Fort Benning, Georgia, entered Advanced Reserve Officers Training, and received an Honorable Discharge in 1971.
