Authorities have recovered the body of a 6-year-old boy who apparently drowned after an all-terrain vehicle overturned in a Mississippi creek, while the search for his brother continued.
One Mississippi veteran was recently rewarded for pursing an education after a horrible motorcycle accident. Marvin Henderson served in Operation Enduring Freedom with the 22nd marine expeditionary force. It was on American soil where he met his greatest test in a motorcycle accident last September.
"I was thrown from the motorcycle when I landed my leg and my foot struck the pavement, shattered my heel," says Henderson.
His leg was amputated, but he was able to overcome that obstacle, thanks to some inspiration from other veterans.
Henderson says, "Lot of these guys actually helped give me encouragement a lot of those guys inspire me to go ahead and I can make this decision of amputation. Theres soldiers who lost their limbs overseas and they're still getting back to their units I said I can do something."
Marvin Henderson was recently awarded the University Professional and Continuing Education Association South Award, given to someone who has shown exemplary determination against difficult odds.
Henderson says, "I chose to ignore the pain and swelling and come to class on crutches. I wanna thank those guys for paving the way for me giving me that outlet on the prosthetic limb."
Marvin Henderson currently works as a Mississippi Highway Patrolman. His degree earned from Tulane is in Homeland Security.
