When Brandon E. Adams managed to speak a few words to his family, they hoped the worst had passed. He had been badly injured Feb. 16 in Fallujah when a grenade exploded as he was clearing a house. Doctors in Baghdad were able to remove six pieces of shrapnel from his head, but they had to leave three pieces behind and remove parts of his skull. He spent the next several months in hospitals in Germany and the United States. "He was improving very slowly. His mind was good and all his vital signs were fine," said Melda Bricker, Adams'' grandmother. "He had started to say a few words." Adams, 22, of Hollidaysburg, Pa., died Sept. 19 at Walter Reed Medical Center in Washington, D.C. He was based at Fort Drum. A 2000 high school graduate, Adams enlisted in the Army after graduation and served for more than two years in Alaska. Adams wrestled during high school and liked camping and hiking. He is survived by his parents.

Not sure what to say?

-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

- 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........

In Gods kingdom government there will be no wars

To the Adams family and friends.
Please find comfort in knowing that God cares for you and understands your pain. Isa 40:29 you have my deepest sympathy.

I came across Brandon's story while searching for information on Hollidaysburg. I want to thank Brandon for his sacrifice and let his family know that, even 10 years later, his sacrifice is remembered and appreciated.

Psalms 46:9
He is making wars to cease to the extremity of the earth.
The bow he breaks apart and does cut the spear in pieces;
The wagons he burns in the fire. What a joyful day that the earth looks forwards to.

To the family and friends of Sgt. Brandon E. Adams:
It has truly been my honor to sign Brandon's guest book these past few years. Unfortunately, due to complications from my Multiple Sclerosis, this may be the last message I'm able to write. Please forgive me and know that Brandon will always be remembered in my home.
With love and respect ~ Peggy

We would like to express our deepest condolences and also let the Adams Family know that we recently sent Care Packages to American troops in the war zones. Each box carried a dedication sheet that includes the name, service information and a photo of your loved one. We recognize that this is a humble tribute, but we wanted you to know that it is heartfelt and made possible by thousands of like-minded individuals in the youth hockey community and beyond. We will not forget. ...
