Robby Taylor Hendrickson had big plans for the future. He hoped one day to return to school to become a pediatric nurse. In the meantime, his plans were all about family in Oklahoma _ his parents, sister and 6-year-old son Dylan. "He was a good dad," Hendrickson's own father, Dave Hendrickson, said. "He did his best to do whatever he could for his son. He loved Dylan more than anything." Hendrickson, 24, of Broken Bow, Okla., died Feb. 1 after the military vehicle he was driving struck a barrier and toppled over. He was based at Fort Hood. The young soldier prepared for his death, according to his family. When he left for his deployment last year, he left behind the marksman and cavalry patches he had earned so relatives would have something to remember him by. But it was life he embraced. Robby Hendrickson last traded Internet messages with his father two days before he died, saying he looked forward to going camping and doing other "guy stuff" with his dad and son.
