Hodgdon retires number worn by soldier who died in Afghanistan
By Ernie Clark, BDN Staff

HODGDON, Maine — Hodgdon High School honored one of its fallen sons Friday evening, formally retiring the basketball uniform number worn by the late Sgt. 1st Class Aaron Henderson.

Henderson, a 1997 graduate of the school, died Oct. 2 at Bagram Air Base, Afghanistan, of wounds suffered when insurgents attacked his unit on Sept. 30 with an improvised explosive device in Zombalay Village, Afghanistan. He was 33.

Henderson was described as an excellent student and athlete during his time at Hodgdon High School, according to athletic administrator Wayne Quint. He played soccer, baseball and basketball for the Hawks.

God bless Aaron and his family.. To make the greatest sacrifice for your country is humbling to me and I'm sure many.

Congrats to Hodgdon for honoring Aaron. Those were some fun Hodgdon teams with the Henderson boys on the floor.

Aaron Henderson Memorial Softball Tournament

Family, friends and community members came out to support a good cause and play softball.
13 teams competed and officials say it was the biggest turn out they've ever had. The Laser Show out of Woodland stopped County Yankee of Houlton in the Championship game. Once again this year several events were held including a five k run. Over 62 hundred dollars was raised for the Green Berets Foundation in honor of Aaron Henderson. He died in October of 2012 while serving our country.
