Henry entered into the army on March 31, 1941 in Houston, Texas. He served as a private in the 200th Coast Artillery Battery F.

Henry was captured with many others by the Japanese and forced to march in what is known as the Bataan Death March from Mariveles, Bataan, to San Fernando, Pampanga in the Phillipines. The prisoners were denied food and water and many died along the way.

Henry was one that survived the gruesome march and boarded the box trains and brought to Camp O'Donell in Capas, Tarlac where he later died.

Henry is not physically buried here but instead recognized here and buried in O'Donnell Cemetery. Find A Grave #16786960
