Remembering U.S. Army Cpl. Lorne E. Henry, Jr.

CPL Lorne E. Henry Jr. of Niagra Falls, NY was one of my Soldiers in South West Baghdad. He was always happy and could always be found looking from behind his big smile. On February 27th 2007, he was killed by an IED. He was a hard worker, never openly complained, had a big bright future ahead of him.

Henry,
It has been three years now. That seems like a long time ago now, but your memory is still fresh, Thank you for your sacrifice. You certainly have made an impact on this conflict and in our hearts. Thank you for your optimism, your smile, your hard work, your selflessness. I miss you.

In loving memory of:
Army Staff Sgt. James Pettaway Jr., of South Hampton, NY and Baltimore, Maryland who died October 3, 2004 after returning to his second tour in Iraq. He died from injuries from a motor vehicle accident. He is survived by his mother and father, and his son, Brandon. I had the pleasure of hanging out with James upon his return from his first tour in Iraq. He truly enjoyed life to its fullest. He was kind and decent, and very caring. And in the middle of all he had to do, made sure he stayed in touch with me to let me know he was okay and when he’d be arriving. WE ARE LOSING TOO MANY GOOD PEOPLE TO THIS CONFLICT! IT SURE AS HELL BETTER BE WORTH IT!!
