Ben Adams

Fallen Hero’s Hometown and State: Farmers Branch, TX

Branch of Service: U.S. Army

Rank: Sergeant

Ben served in over 200 Operation Iraqi Freedom missions as a soldier in the United States Army. He was a hero that willingly sacrificed his body to protect the freedom we enjoy.

It was important to him to help and support his brothers and sisters; to listen and to talk to them about their experiences. In helping others to heal, he, in turn, helped himself.

Near the end of his tour, Ben’s vehicle encountered an IED and he sustained serious neck and back injuries from the blast, including substantial injuries to his brain. When he returned home he was never quite the same. Ben, while struggling with his own post-war issues, reached out to others who were in the same situation by participating in 22KILL programs.
