Henry was a driven student who earned a place in the National Society of High School Scholars and Who’s Who Among American High School Students

Caring, thoughtful, humble, goal-oriented, and noble are just some of the words teachers and students used to describe Lorne. He was a quiet leader, and he always led by example. He always wanted to be a cop, always wanted to be helpful.

He visited his mother, Wendy Kovac, and stepfather, Charles Primerano, in Niagara Falls a few weeks before his death. He was planning to leave the Army in August.

Lorne Henry Jr. was awarded the Bronze Star, and Purple Heart.

    Henry! 12 years today. I’m thinking about you and the others. I am proud of your service and the memories I have of you. I always have a hard time understanding why it all happened, but I look forward to seeing you again and hope to live a life worthy of the sacrifice you made 12 years ago today.
    Never forgotten!

    Henry,
    As I walked into the Pentagon this morning, just after 0400 hrs, I was thinking about the upcoming tasks of the day. In the haze of thought I paused and thought “wait, what is the date today…” as I realized the date my stomach dropped. February 27th will never be an easy day. However, I remain committed to honor you and your sacrifice. I look forward to our reunion one day!
