-I do not know Adams himself, however i served my country proudly.- now i live quietly in the small Missouri town of Tightwad , pop. 69
NMCB 40 Port Hueneme, CA
- I do know this :
Adams wore that uniform with great pride, something that you will never rip from a soldier, cant take that away, no sir. Those servicemen who spoke of Adams , grasp that same pride. Can't take it from them neither, no sir.
In theory, "you" can try..... But I wouldn't if I was "you".
Adams , these here Servicemen...., soldiers, sailors, and their loved ones, grasp that very same pride.
I will include Adams and his family in tonights prayer, as i pray nightly, I include our servicewomen / servicemen to some degree, highlighting the Navy of course, in thanking the young man for his sacrifice.
I served proudly next to great people. Any of the which will stand next to each other, words not needed to be spoke, and ya already know.
They would for you.
Adams did for us.
I stumbled upon this obituary, a Facebook page posted a found picture stuck behind a frame, finder looking for the owner and or family of, .......
to return a serviceman's boot-camp photo. (name tape reads Adams) Highly unlikely I found the lad in the pic. althogh the age would be same in years. it is possible....(no photo to compare here.) not the point.
A Serviceman's Photo. And the effort some one is giving to return it.
Now Just stop and think about that !
That pride I spoke of, I guarantee you , YOU WILL NOT RIP FROM THIER HANDS NEITHER, NO SIR. !
Anyone can look and see in any one of those pictures we all know of and are familiar with. Ever think of that being the first pic, first chance to show off that pride which was worked hard for and earned proudly. A soldier and his uniform, their first picture together. You know and remember that feeling ! Pride fully grasped !
Those who are close to Adams and his family, God Bless, and you are strong in your pain. I want you all to remember the soldier in the picture, when you think of them, grasp tightly not to let go, cant nobody take them from you. and you best belive we wont allow them to be taken , NO SIR ! WE HAVE YOU FULLY IN GRASP !
If you are still reading this , please know , Adams, years later after this obituary written, still reaches, still moves, and I hope you realize we still have you in our grasp and you will never be let go alone. Pride will not allow for that.
This reaches years and more, A couple wants to return a seemingly all to common photo from 2000 (21yrs). I see why , the pride , grasping , i see why and i agree.
Thank You Adams for letting me speak on this here obituary of yours.
And to the Greatest Dam Country In The World ,
God Bless, your Beautiful !
