Each day, the VA honors a special military veteran for their dedicated service on their blog, VAntage Point. Today’s feature is Marine Veteran Robert Hendriks, who served from 2012 to 2019 and deployed for Operation Enduring Freedom.

Robert Hendriks grew up in Locust Valley, New York where he played lacrosse at the high school. After graduating and a brief stint as a construction worker in Queens, Hendriks joined the Marine Corps in October 2012, where he erved with the 25th Marine Regiment, Fourth Marine Division Marine Forces Reserve.

 Hendriks was deployed in May 2018 s part of the Georgia Deployment Program-Resolute Support Mission in which Marines trained and advised Georgian infantry troops.He served abroad armored mine-resistant ambush protected vehicles as a turret gunner.

On April 8, 2019 Hendriks and two of his comrades died when an explosive device went off near Bagram Airfield, a joint U.S. base located near Kabul, Afghanistan. Hendriks was 25 years old. 

Hendriks received a posthumous promotion from corporal to sergeant and even inspired the creation of the United States Marine Sergeant Robert A. Hendriks Memorial Scholarship by the Locust Valley School District. The recipient is a senior who plans to enter the military and exemplifies the characteristics Hendriks displayed as a student and Marine.

Hendriks is survived by his parents and brother.

We honor his service.

    I was curious if you ever thought of changing the layout of your site?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 pictures.
    Maybe you could space it out better?

  • Sex Dating says:

    Amazing blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download
    it from somewhere? A theme like yours with a few simple adjustements would really make my blog jump out.

    Remarkable! Its really awesome post, I have got much clear idea on the topic of
    from this piece of writing.

  • Sex Dating says:

    I think everything published was very reasonable. But, what about this?
    suppose you composed a catchier post title?
    I ain’t saying your content is not solid., but what if you added something
    to possibly grab people’s attention? I mean VA #Veteranoftheday
    – Robert Hendriks – Veterans In Trucking is kinda boring.

    You ought to peek at Yahoo’s home page and note how they write news headlines to grab people
    interested. You might add a video or a pic or two to grab readers excited
    about what you’ve got to say. Just my opinion, it could make your posts a little bit more interesting.

    Hi this is kind of of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding knowledge so
    I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  • Zachary says:

    Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids.
    I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.

    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but
    I had to tell someone!
