The grave is that of Kentucky State Police officer Herbert Bush and is located at the Evergreen Cemetery in Southgate, Kentucky. The Bush Family was from Butler.

The Law Enforcement Memorial Week was observed this year beginning May 12- May 18. Kentucky State Police at the Dry Ridge Post 6 have three officers who have paid the ultimate sacrifice and are buried in different regions of the Post 6 area. During this time, a select few officers are chosen to conduct a wreath laying ceremony at each of the grave sites to honor these Units and remember their sacrifice for the agency. The detail this year took place on Thursday, May 16th.
