Plainfield - SSG Frank E. Adamski III, stationed at Fort Campbell, Ky., formerly of Plainfield, was killed in action in Kunar Province, Afghanistan, on Tuesday, March 29, 2011.

He was born in Port Jefferson, N.Y., on March 30, 1984, to Frank E. Adamski Jr. of Voluntown and Susan (Poppiti) Adamski of Port Jefferson, N.Y. After moving to Connecticut from Long Island at age nine, he attended elementary school in Voluntown. He grew up in Plainfield and graduated from Plainfield High School in 2002 where he participated in football and track. He joined the Army in March 2005, where he completed basic training in Ft. Benning, Ga. Following basic training, he was stationed in Friedberg, Germany, where he was attached to the 1/36th Infantry, 1st Brigade, 1st Armored Division. He deployed to Iraq during Operation Iraqi Freedom.

He married the love of his life, Danielle (Bimler) Adamski on March 31, 2007.

After returning home, he was stationed in Fort Benning, Ga., where he was a Javelin Anti-Armor Missile instructor. In early 2009, he re-enlisted and was stationed at Fort Campbell, Ky., where he was attached to the 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault), 2/327 1st Brigade Combat Team.

In February of 2010, he became a proud father of Victoria Grace Adamski. Shortly after Victoria's birth, he was deployed to Kunar Province, Afghanistan, in support of Operation Enduring Freedom.

Besides his wife and daughter, he is survived by his parents; his sister, Veronica Adamski; his great-grandmother, Emma Marie Adamski; and numerous family members.

A memorial service will be held at 11 a.m. on Tuesday, April 5, 2011, at St. John the Apostle Church in Plainfield. A gathering will be held at the Plainfield VFW following the service, and all are welcome. Burial will be private at Arlington National Cemetery at a later date.

By request of the family, we ask that you bring a dish and your many fond memories of Frank. We want his infectious smile and sense of humor to live on forever.

I had just watched you on 'Hornets Nest' on Amazon. I just want to say Thank You for your service & sacrifice! In that short hour & a half, I felt as though I was beside you on the battlefield. As if you were a brother & a friend. I felt the helplessness thereafter along with tremendous sadness that still follows me. That was two days ago I watched it. Again, thank you for your courage, bravery, service & ultimate sacrifice so that we ALL can enjoy our freedom. Thanks also to that documentary for introducing you to me. You will forever be in my prayers, never forgotten. My prayers to your wife and daughter as well.

To my brother and friend Frank, I still drink a Heineken first in remembrance of how he loved Heineken beer, then I drink my Corona. Frank and I went on leave after we got back from Iraq. I spent the whole night with him drinking Heineken's all on me as my gift to him since I could not attend his wedding. We had a blast! From 1201 am to 0600 am before he and I caught our planes to the states from Frankfurt,Germany. I still remember his laugh and cool smile. Peace my brother and God's Blessing to his lovely wife Danielle and beautiful daughter. Old Man ... Rangel

Yesterday was a joyous day. Not only did I attend the No Slack reunion I also recalled the fond memories of meeting you. I can still hear your laughter as if it was yesterday I also remembered your very infectious smile. I was quiet upon meeting alot of your friends but I remembered your hospitality of wanting to make me feel wanted and appreciated for being a guest at the pre-deployment barbecue. All of you boys of No Slack have me the sense of feeling young again. Although the there was a quiet somber calm of knowing all of you would be deploying soon you made sure everyone heard and felt the celebration of life. You all gave me the sense of being part of a family much larger than I could ever imagine. I met your dad today and I could immediately see and feel where you had inherited the love and passion for life. May you rest in peace son and continue to watch over your family, your friends and your beloved extended family otherwise known as No Slack. You paid the ultimate price of war for the love of your Country and for this I thank you. You set the bar high for the future No Slack soldiers. Job well done!

To Frank and his family, I send you my thoughts, respect and admiration for your strength of spirit. As the granddaughter of a WWI Vet, the daughter of an Army/National Guard Korean War Vet (whose name was Francis and called by his military buddies, Frank), and the sister of (3 brothers) a Marine Vet, an Army/National Guard Vet of both 1991 and 2003 Gulf wars and a veteran local Volunteer Firefighter-I was raised to appreciate those who sacrifice their time with their families, and sometimes their lives, for our freedoms in this country. Luckily, I did not have to experience a loved one making the ultimate sacrifice. But, I can only imagine that you (as would I) would wish more time with him, than have the comfort of the word "Hero". Anyone who puts themselves in harm's way, for the good of another/others, is already a Hero-so Frank deserves double the remembrance. I did not know him, or any of his loved ones, but I am honored to put down in writing what he (so young!) and all his family mean to me and our country. Occasionally, I have the good fortune to sing our National Anthem at a public event (possibly the Ledyard Memorial Day Parade this year) and the next time I sing it-I would like to dedicate it to Frank. May peace find it's way to your hearts, in it's own time.

Our deepest condolences to the family of SSG Frank Adamski. As military parents we know that the pride you feel when your son joined the military was tempered by the worries his choice brought to you. May you be consoled in the fact that you were lucky to have a HERO in your midst. May the peace of the Lord be with you always.

I am so sorry for your loss. I know that losing a loved one is hard to go through. God tells us that he will soon wipe out every tear from our eyes, death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry, nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away." I hope that this brings you some comfort.

Rest in peace Frank! Your family and friends will never forget what a great person and hero you were.

Frank, I know I already told you this but I will say it again. I have more respect for you than you will ever know. I am honored to have known you and been a part of your life. My son tells me everyday that his uncle Frankie is his hero and he misses you. Your sacrifice for your family and this country can never be repaid and will never be forgotten. I just wish there was more time for us to watch our kids grow up together, but I promise you that I will make sure that Victoria knows who her dad was and I will do everything in my power to look after her the best I can. Until we meet again.......

This was a poem I found online and thought it fit well. If tears could build a stairway and memories were a lane, we would walk all the way to haven to bring you home again. No fairwell words were spoken, no time to say good bye, you were gone before we knew it, and only god knows why, our hearts ach in sadness, and secret tears will flow, what is ment to lose you , no one will ever know. The writer is anonymous. I think this says it all.

I worked my first job with you at riverview and that crazy newspaper job. I couldn't have asked for a better friend. You truly were an awesome guy and it was a pleasure to have known you. I'll never forget your bravery that you've shown and I hope your in a much better place. We all love you buddy rest easy.
