This Memorial Page Established by-Terry Henderson
In Honor Of CW 2 Miles Parker Henderson
Miles was born in Amarillo, TX but always called Canadian, TX "home." He was a scholar
who hated school but was salutatorian of his class. He loved the camaraderie of his friends
more than anything. He had a huge heart full of compassion and drive. He worked harder to
accomplish his goals than anyone else. Always almost the smallest player in the district, he
fought to be the biggest encourager for his football teammates. He attended Western State
College in Colorado for one semester, that was until his ski lift ticket ran out! Then he
returned to Texas to work at Amarillo Artificial Limb and Brace with his dear friends and
mentors there. He enlisted because he loved God, his family and his country and was proud
and honored to serve each. He worked extremely hard to qualify for flight school and was
very proud of what he was doing. He leaves behind his parents, his sister and his wife and a
host of family and friends who love and miss him, but know that now,
specially now, in heaven, his motto- "No Worries" is absolutely true.
He was proud to be a part of the A company "Wolfpack" in the 1st Attack Reconnaissance
Battalion, 82nd Combat Aviation Brigade, 82nd Airborne based at Ft. Bragg N.C.
On November 6, 2006, near Tikrit Iraq Miles marched into heaven with his friend and mentor
John R. Priestner when their Apache Helicopter went down during bad weather while
returning to base from a mission.

In Honor Of  CWO2 Miles Henderson
I did not have the honor of knowing Miles...from knowing his parents and sister and the type
of family he came from (Christian, loving, compassionate and patriotic)I have no doubt he
continues to look after his loved ones from Above.  What an incredible young man who
obviously touched the lives of all that he came in contact with.
