Hernandez conducted multiple operational and training events, including Jungle Warfare Training, Lance Corporal’s Leadership and Ethics Seminar, Helicopter Egress training, and many others.

A quiet, yet very caring person, Armando was an avid blood and plasma donor. He had a heart for children with Autism and homeless people and loved nature’s beauty. His genuine heart, along with his calm presence, his steady demeanor, and his can-do attitude won him many loyal and faithful friends.

Armando had a deep love for his family and friends. He was wise beyond his years and would light up the room with his interesting character. Armando made a home of the barracks and was the glue that kept the Marines together. He celebrated holidays and birthdays for the boys on base and cooked homemade recipes to make a home away from home for them. He is loved by many and is dearly missed.
