18th Operation: Raise The Roof
Honoring US Army SP4 Hearlie “Bee” Hendricks
As a part of the Valor Home, Operation: Raise the Roof Program, we will be honoring, SP4 Hendricks, for his dedication and service to our country. Operation: Raise the Roof will provide a new roof to Mr. Hendricks on this day.
Hearlie “Bee” Hendricks was born in Saint Charles, West Virginia on 23MAY47. He was the youngest of five and grew up in a small house at the top of a mountain, in a very poor coal mining town in the southernmost part of Virginia. When Hearlie was 17 he was drafted away from his senior year in high school into Vietnam War.
“Every time we honor a Veteran from the Vietnam Era, my memories of my own service, that are always ever-present, seem to be even stronger,” stated Al Kincaid “Our ability to give back to heroes is by far the most rewarding thing I could imagine doing. We are truly honored to be a part of this brave soldiers journey.” – Al Kincaid, Founder of Valor Home
After the war, Hearlie married his childhood sweetheart and had one daughter. He moved away from his home town to learn a plumbing trade and worked very hard to buy his Mother a home and build a secure place to live for his family here.
“I know he has tried his best to hide his anxiety, depression and PTSD. He’s not been coping well at all. He is 100% disabled and goes to the VA in Martinsburg. Hearlie’s PTSD has taken his enjoyment of life from him. He is debilitated with anxiety, depression, and in pain. He is just not able to do the things he used to love to do.” – Mrs. Cindy Hendricks, Hearlie’s wife
Valor Home will have several partners and VIP’s in attendance for this event. We anticipate a day full of fun-filled events celebrating Mr. Hendricks and what he accomplished in service of his country.
Operation: Raise the Roof was created by Valor Home to give back to service disabled veterans in need. Veteran recipients are nominated by their community through the Valor Home website. With hundreds of applications to choose from, Valor Home selects four veterans a year, one per quarter, to receive a new roof. In less than three years, the program has donated 18 roofs, a value of $180,000. Through our partnerships with Operation Second Chance, Flags of Valor, DeWALT, Mission BBQ, and our radio/ television partners, we are able to make these events transformational and memorable. Your participation is crucial to the ongoing success of these events, and we humbly thank you.LEARN MORE ABOUT OUR RAISE THE ROOF PROGRAM NOMINATE A VETERAN
