Hey there Levya, Timothy Bennett here, I served with Cpl. Hernandez in the 3rd INF Regt. "The Old Guard" prior to him volunteering for Germany. I never knew he deployed until I heard the news. He was a great friend, a great father, and a great husband. He will be missed and is at rest in Arlington as the first junior enlisted to receieve full military honors at Arlington Cemetary. Never forgotten...
