Today we recognize and pay tribute to Sgt Robert Hendriks. for his sacrifice while serving during Operation Freedom’s Sentinel. April 8, 2019, at the age of 25, Hendriks was killed in bombing in Parwan province, Afghanistan.

Robert A. Hendriks, a Long Island native, was born on March 4th, 1994, in the town of Glen Cove. He then moved with his family to Locust Valley at the age of two. As a boy, Robert would play “Army” with his younger brother Joseph and their friends. According to his mother, Felicia Arculeo, “Robert had his head on his shoulders and always did the right thing. He had a lot of friends, even though he wasn’t a jock or a Science Olympiad. Robby was a normal all-around boy.” Robert’s family are no stranger to military service, having an uncle, a cousin, and a great grandfather who were all combat veterans.

Robert attended Locust Valley High School. He trained in boxing, martial arts, and had affection for tattoos. When he was a senior, he enlisted in the Marine Corps Reserve. He graduated in 2012 and went to work with the Local 731 Laborers Union. In 2018, then a shop steward for Local 731, he rose to the opportunity to serve overseas in Afghanistan, where he was a turret gunner perched atop an armored, mine-resistant vehicle. He was assigned to the U.S Marines 2nd Battalion, 25th Marines Reserve Infantry Battalion.

Robert’s younger brother Joseph is a fellow Marine who found out about his sibling’s death on his first night in Afghanistan. Joseph later accompanied his brother’s coffin back to the United States.

In April of 2021, Nassau County Legislator Joshua Lafazan spearheaded a campaign to have a stretch of Forest Avenue between Birch Hill Road and Birch Street in Locust Valley renamed Robert A. Hendriks Way.

On April 24, 2019, Robert was laid to rest at Calverton National Cemetery in section 66, grave 2945. You can leave a tribute to Sgt Hendriks by visiting his page on the Veterans Legacy Memorial site at: https://www.vlm.cem.va.gov/ROBERTAHENDRIKS/35396F8

Oyster Bay township is now accepting applications for the 2024 Hometown Heroes’ Community Recognition Program. This initiative recognizes the service and sacrifice of the brave men and women of the United States Armed Forces – both living and deceased – who are current or former Town of Oyster Bay residents.

Banners bearing the nominated individual’s name, rank, photograph and area of service will be unveiled throughout selected park facilities across the Town of Oyster Bay in the months leading up to Veterans Day in November.

Any interested individual or organization who would wish to sponsor a banner can remit $75 to sponsor the production of a banner. No profit is made from this program.

Once the banners are displayed, the Town will maintain the banners, and will remain on display until Veterans Day, where they will then be taken down to avoid any inclement winter weather and returned to the service family or their loved ones.

Those who sponsored a banner last year are reminded to submit a new application in order to be included in the 2024 season. Applications must be received by March 15, 2024.

For more information on how to sponsor a banner, visit www.oysterbaytown.com/herobanners to download or submit an application, or call (516) 797-4121.
