On April 17, 2004, Army 1st Lt. Robert L. Henderson II (33) of Alvaton was killed in Diwanlyah, Iraq. This Warren County native was a sales manager for Lowe’s of BG prior to his service. Rob was shot twice and continued to lead his platoon through an ambush to safety. He was taken to a field hospital, where he died from his injuries. Rob was a real hero and was proud to serve. At the time of Rob’s death, his wife (Lisa) was expecting their first child, a son. This event has been created to honor Rob, and his family, on the 15th anniversary of his passing.
We are asking the entire community to support this benefit and our veterans. Proceeds raised from the benefit will be donated to AMVETS Bowling Green – Post 130.
