Last Known Activity

1Lt Adams died on his way to go home from Iraq, when he was struck in the head by the barrel of his M2 .50 Cal Machine Gun as it was struck by a passing vehicle.  This occurred in or near Muhammadi Iraq while I was still at Al Asad.  

This profile is a work in progress, and though I knew Lt Adams there are many who knew him better. Please feel free to comment or correct me as I add to this profile.

Here is a message from someone else who knew him...

"I remember you like it was yesterday and you played a joke on my sgt telling him that your tank had broken down and we could tow it back to Tiger base with a humvee all he had to do was put the tank in neutral and the sgt believed him, I still laugh when I think of the LT and that day. I was sickened when I heard that such a great guy was killed, the army really lost a Great Soldier and a Great Leader. " BRAVE RIFLES SIR!"
