We would like to express our deepest condolences and also let the Adamkavicius Family and friends know that we will be sending Care Packages to deployed troops this week and we'll be dedicating several of these to your loved one. Each package will carry the name, photo and the hometown of Clayton L. Adamkavicius US Army Captain. We realize that this is a small tribute, but we do this with all respect and sincerity and we want you to know that it is made possible by thousands of like-minded individuals from across the American youth hockey community. We will not forget. May God Bless you and keep you strong.

Remembering Clay...
April 25, 2016
We remember.
April 21, 2016
We served together in the same area in combat. I will always remember him calling me over to adjust my body armor so it wouldn't hurt and slow me down. I remember him showing me how to do things the right way. Ten years and I still remember, we all remember.
April 21, 2016

I just cannot believe it's been 10 years since you were taken from us.

I know I'm far from alone when I say you are missed just as much now as you were a decade ago.

I'll never forget that horrible day I learned of your death. So wrong in so many ways but, God must have needed you in Heaven for something very important.

I will always love you and miss you.
April 20, 2016
It's difficult to believe Clay has been gone for a decade. He was truly a good guy. He is gone...but not forgotten. From a classmate at Poly H.S. Class of 1981.

Dear Brave Capt. Adamkavicius,

To go to war is one of the greatest hardships a person may face. To command troops on the battlefield must be so much more difficult. You died with the people you led, true blue to the end. Go take your place among the courageous who've given up their safety for their fellow man. Brave Captain, we mourn your loss. Rest in peace for your job is done. We salute you soldier.

To the Adamkavicius Family,

It is hard for me to find the correct words to sum up my thoughts as I write this entry because it has been so long since Clay and I served together. I was his Company Commander in the Nevada Army National Guard and Clay was my finest Platoon Leader. Clay was a true leader of men and a dear friend to many, and I was proud of the job that he did. He was professional, he was a deep thinker, he was trusted by all. I was sad the day he left my unit and heartbroken the day he left this Earth.

I will always think of Clay as my brother and friend.

Goodbye Clay. We will meet again.
May 29, 2008
We are so grateful for your service for our safety and freedom!

You are remembered and respected. Thank you Capt Adamkavicius!

Holding you all in my thoughts and prayers today.

The Wind on The Downs

“I like to think of you as brown and tall,
As strong and living as you used to be,
In khaki tunic, Sam Brown belt and all,
And standing there and laughing down at me.
Because they tell me, dear, that you are dead,
Because I can no longer see your face,
You have not died, it is not true, instead
You seek adventure in some other place.
That you are round about me, I believe;
I hear you laughing as you used to do,
Yet loving all the things I think of you;
And knowing you are happy, should I grieve?
You follow and are watchful where I go.”

(Written by Marian Allen during World War l )

Two lines that I wish you to keep near your heart…….

“You seek adventure in some other place.
That you are round about me, I believe”

I did not know Clayton, but I am remembering on
this day he gave his all.
He is my hero.

April 11, 2008
Its being almost 26 years, since Clayton had come to spend sometime with us in Brazil! Today, for an unjustified reason, I heard that he is not with us anymore. Being an oncologist we suppose to be ready to face death more commonly than others. My mind through this whole day has traveled back to the time we spent together in here, Sao Paulo.
We sure have had a wonderful time together. He studied with my brother in High School, he was an exchanged student at the time, and at the end of my brother’s program, Clayton traveled back with him to stay with us. We were teenagers at the time. So, describing all the adventures we had in here will be a quite long story. After he left, life drove us apart! I never heard from him.
Life is a crazy thing to be shortly explained. A person that we let away in our lives brings comfort to know that even with the absence, the person still alive in some part of this globe.
Today, I heard indeed that I have lost a part of my history. Clayton is not among us, and is not some place in this crazy and fanatic World anymore. But, thank God, in my mind, I have the memories of our laughs, of our great life while in here. Thank you Clayton, for all those great moments you let us share together.
Shall all the angels, to receive you with a stand up applause for the life you may have had. And from where you are, send the whisper of comfort for those who were left in here. I hope these note will allow them to know, that you have a part of you in our hearts in South America. So long my friend, from your friend Milo, in this sad Brazilian night! So long!

You were/are the best. I miss you so much. Thank you for your service to our country and for being such a brave Captain. I'll never get over your death and I pray someday to see you in Heaven.

I will miss you until we meet in Heaven, if it's God's will and will love you for eternity.

If this person can stand in battle to ensure my freedom, then I will stand in grief with his/her family to honor him/her. For every fallen HERO there is a bright star that shines in the evening sky to remind us of the cherished gift we were given – even if for too short a time.
My heart breaks again as I sign yet another guest book of another courageous young soldier who gave their life so selflessly. I wish I never found myself in a position to have to sign another guest book for the rest of my life, but I promised LE RON A. WILSON (a dear friend KIA 7/6/07, 18yrs old) that neither he nor any like him would be forgotten and so I will continue until the day there is no longer the need.

We are sorry it took us so long to post an entry for your family member. We are trying to catch up after locating this website. God Bless for allowing us to honor these heros.

We can't imagine what you have been going through since being notified of the death of your Warrior. The Military and families all over the USA and world are grieving with you and praying for you. What a very brave individual you have in your family that would give up a life for their homeland and its people so they can remain free. Your Freedom Fighter has served the Country above and beyond the call of duty, let no one ever tell you different. With the mission now completed your Warrior has been redeployed to Heaven to sit on the right hand of the Supreme Commander and Chief. The Father above has Clayton in his arms and will give him peace as well as eventually easing your pain and suffering. God speed to you and Capt. Clayton Adamkavicius, our HERO. We are so proud of them that are willing to sacrifice for this great Nation, THANK YOU.

I have memories in my pocket.
They rattle among the change.

My memories of you are treasures I carry wherever I go.

They are stored in bits and pieces, parts of a beautiful whole
They give me comfort when I think I am alone.

Yes, I have memories in my pocket, like so much other stuff I keep there.

But of all the treasures I have, it’s the memories of you that are the most precious.

It's been one year now and I still miss you. I think about you so often. Sometimes I remember something you said or did and you still can make me smile. You'll always be held dear in my heart. I miss you.

To the Family of Capt Clayton Adamkavicius, please accept my heartfelt sympathy for your loss. I was stationed on Guam, with Clay in the Line Delivery shop (Nov 86 - Jan 89). I remember him to be very easy going, very easy to get along with and alot of fun to be around. It was very easy for me to look up to him. He was a wonderful person and a good friend. I know words do not help the pain much right now but later, when you look back on this guest book, you will know that he and his family is still loved and missed so very much. I know you may not know me but I offer my help and support. If there is anything I can do just email me. May God bless and keep you all, and may you feel His comfort and peace through His everlasting loving arms. I will keep you and your family in my prayers.

Wow. I am so sorry to hear about Clay. He and I were best friends while stationed in California (George Air Force Base). He worked in munitions maintenance while I worked in Line Delivery. We were like brothers. We met up again later on while in Guam. I am remembering how he was so full of energy and everyone loved being around him. He would do anything for anyone. What a loss.....

Please accept my condolences.

Very recently I was deeply saddened to learned of your loss.

A few years ago I had the honor of working with (then) LT Adamkavicius.

He was a good officer, who took his responsibilities very seriously. He was a good leader, willing to work alongside his men and lead by example in order to accomplish the mission. The military needs more good men like him.

My deepest sympathies to the Adamkavicius family, to Clay's Friends and to those he served with. Clay was such a good friend. I miss talking with him. He always seemed to have a way to make me smile.

September 02, 2006
Dear Adamkavicius family,
Although belated, I too feel compelled to express my sorrow over your loss. I knew and loved your son, Adam, while he was in high school at Poly. I was one of the volunteer youth staff at First Baptist of Riverside and worked closely with Adam in his "budding journey" toward God. As I read through the various bereavements here, time and again I saw mirrored in the qualities and content of his character the very things I first witnessed back when he was a teenager - a sensitive, witty, thoughtful and kind young man. It is my earnest hope that our God and Father will continue to attend to your sorrow over this great loss - but give you reassurance that he is in the "Everlasting Arms".

In great sympathy,

Dan Weatherford

Dear Adamkavicius Family,
I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. I went to high school with Clayton and I will always remember him for his charm, intelligence and good looks. He was a huge heart-throb in high school. Not only for me, but for many, many, many girls! And I'm proud to have known him.

My deepest sympathy for your loss. I am a missionary who became penpals with Clay while he was in Afghanistan. I know that he became stronger in his faith. It has been a blessing to have known him. May God Bless you!

You have my deepest sympathies and my greatest respect. The ultimate sacrifice that your loved one gave means that my loved ones may continue to live in a USA that is a little safer from another terrorist attack.

God Bless you. You have all of my support and prayers.

May God bless your family in their time of grief. My wife died in the world trade center and I feel a loss everytime I hear of a brave soldier losing their life to protect mine and my sons.

To the members of the Adamkavicius Family:

It was with great saddness that I learned of Clayton's death just last night. As a Canadian Forces Chaplain, I met Clayton while I was deployed as part of Op Enduring Freedom in Kandahar. I returned to Canada in late February 2006 having completed a 6 month tour. I re-deployed to Kandahar two weeks ago.

Clayton and I had many meaningful and heartfelt conversations about the meaning of life, about faith, and about the mission here in Afghanistan. He shared with me his hopes, his joys, his fears, his sorrows and the love he had for his family. I count it a great privilege to have met and known him.

He was a fine officer, a good man, a hero, a deep thinker, and one who sought in his last months the presence of God in his life. I consider it an honour that God gave me the opportunity to minister to him in whatever small way I could.

I have every confidence that the Lord has granted him the desires of his heart and has delivered him from the sting of death.

To honour his memory, on 07 July 2006, I offered Mass at the Kandahar Airfield Chapel for the repose of his soul and for you the members of his family. May the Lord, in his godness, grant you peace and consolation at this time of loss.

I will truly miss Clayton.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Memorial Day 2006 - I have always taken time on Memorial Day to say "thanks" to those who have served America.
Now, this day is even more special as I remember the life of my friend, Clay, killed in action, 4/21/2006.

We were like brothers - from the time we met back in 1985 on Guam, as young Airmen, we just clicked and were the best of friends from then until now.

Clay, I think of you often - I miss the great times we had and the laughs we shared. You will be missed - and remembered, forever.

I am saddened that you are gone, but I know that you died doing what you loved most - serving and fighting for your country. I am proud of you and forever grateful for your ultimate sacrifice.

Rest In Peace, My Brother

To the Adamkavicius Family:

My name is AJ Johnson and I worked with Clay when he first came into the Air Force in the missile shop at George AFB. I remember him having orders to Guam when I left George late 1985. Clay was always full of energy when we had to work the many long hours supporting the F-4s and we also had some great times off duty as well. Even though I am saddened, I am extremely proud that Clay eventually left the Air Force and became an officer leading troops in the War against Terror. I will pinning on "Chief" on 1 July and I am going to dedicate my ceremony in the memory of Capt. Clayton Adamkavicius, former AMMO Troop, United States Air Force.

God Bless your Husband, your Father, your Son, Your Brother, Your Grandson. He served our Country with Honor.
Although he was Kentucky Army National Guard and I Air Force, we served under the same Flag and fought for the same Freedoms. He will be greatly missed but he did not die in vain.
Although I never knew your Husband, we live in the city where he went to school and where he grew up. When I read the obituary, as a brother officer, I felt compelled to attend the services today and pay my respects to you and your family.
Please feel free to contact me or the Military Officers Association of America if we can assist in any way. Bonnie, later you will get a
note of condolence and offer of assistance from one of our widowed members who have shared your grief in their own lives.
You are not alone. We are here to help. & 800-234-6622.

I am deeply saddened at the loss of Clay. Clay was a student of mine while he was pursuing his graduate degree at the University of Phoenix, Louisville Campus.

Clay portrayed the characteristics of model student. He was always so participative in class discussions and he forged some lively deliberations involving course topics.

In the short time I knew him, I detected he was the type that could be counted on to get things done. Clay served our country with pride and excellence. May the peace of the Lord be always with him and his family.

To Mrs. Adamkavicius, family and friends,
Please accept my most sincere condolences. My son served 15 months with the 1st Infantry Division in Bayji and downtown Balad,Iraq. I know only too well the fear of facing what you are living right now. I pray every day for all our soldiers and their families, saying an extra prayer for those who have lost their loved ones. God bless you. Please know that there are many of us that care.
April 29, 2006
Clay was a good man and a good friend. I cherish the memories of time spent with him during and after high school. He was taken from this world too soon.

This guest book is here so that all of us who appreciate and respect your Captain's sacrifice can tell you so. It is part of the military commitment to accept this risk, and unfortunately the family too must accept it. My son accepted it, and Benjamin Schuster was KIA in Ramadi Iraq on February 25, 2006. Our family is on your journey, and know full well the many many painful moments just ahead. But we also know how great a gift my son was to his family and friends, how irreplaceable. I know the same can be said of Clayton. We honor your soldier and his sacrifice, and will keep you all in our thoughts and prayers.
April 28, 2006
Rest in peace at your last post in paradise.

To the Family of Clayton Adamkavicius- I am very sorry for your loss. I pray you find peace and comfort in the Lord's everlasting arms. Thank you for your sacrifice, Sir.

To the Family of Capt. Clayton Adamkavicius:
My heart breaks again as I sign yet another guest book of another courgeous young soldier who gave their life so selflessly. I wish I never found myself in a position to have to sign another guestbook for the rest of my life. We lost a son 12/1/05.
I know first hand there are no words right now that will bring you the comfort and peace you need. Just know that you are not alone. My heart, thoughts, and prayers are with you all as you mourn this loss. We don't know each other, will probably never meet, but will forever be united in the loss of our Heroes. We have, unfortunately joined a group none of us wanted to join, an ever-growing group of families in this situation. May God grant you peace and strength to get through this and be able once again to smile at a memory rather than have only the tears that flow so easily now. To be so proud of your loved one and so saddened at the same time is a mix of emotions very difficult to deal with. I am sorry that I never knew your soldier personally, but none of these courageous men and women will be forgotten. They will never be able to be replaced, but sometime, someday your loving memories will help to sustain you. This courageous soldier will forever now be your Angel watching over you all for the rest of your lives. It's what brings me some measure of peace and comfort and I hope it will you as well. To his family and friends in pain, I offer this comfort. When you find yourself in that dark sorrowful place, think not only of how you will miss him, but instead recall the years, days, hours and minutes gifted to you by his presence. If you ever want to talk, I'm only an e:mail away and would love for you to tell me more about your Hero. God Bless this courageous soldier and family.
