Two N.D. National Guard Soldiers Remembered

Posted: Updated:

Two North Dakota National Guard lost their lives 10 years ago today.

Keith Smette of Makoti and Kenneth Hendrickson of Bismarck were killed when a bomb exploded by their vehicle in Iraq.

Over the years Hendrickson's sone, Trevor, has learned to cope with his grief, and now he talks with other military families who go through a similar experience.

"It's not what happens but it's what you do about it. That is the determining factor in you're future. So, it's really let it mold you into the person you've become. Don't let it define you. That's my message. Learn to appreciate the here and now, move forward and don't let the pain and grief be your defining factor," says Trevor Hendrickson, son whose father was killed in Iraq.
