Spc. Algernon Adams earned a Purple Heart in Iraq in August when he was one of four engineers wounded when they were hit by shrapnel. Adams, 36, a member of the South Carolina National Guard, died Oct. 28 at a base near Fallujah of a gunshot wound. "He was just a good son," said his mother, Ann Brown. "He went and did his duty and he was there for his country." Adams graduated from high school in Augusta, Ga., and had served in the Guard for about 17 years, his mother said. He lived in North Augusta, S.C. Adams is also survived by his wife, Lisa.
