Honoring Lance Corporal Sean Adams

Lance Corporal Sean Adams"I was born on December 22, 1992 in Gainesville, Georgia. I grew up working on a farm, shoeing horses and mending fences to make money to buy my first car. I felt like I was going nowhere and I wanted to be and do more. I always loved the Marines and what they stood for so I joined at 17, went to Paris Island for boot camp, then deployed to Afghanistan with 1BN 8th Marines to Helmand Province. On the February 10, 2012, my life changed forever. I took my last step on my own two feet and laid for an hour in a field waiting for the medvac. Once aboard the aircraft I lost consciousness and woke up 10 weeks later at Walter Reed Hospital. I started my journey through therapy, began to walk again, and then I retired out of the Marine Corps, which was the hardest thing I've ever done, to give up something I love so much. I returned to Georgia and I have rebuilt my life and now my goals are to obtain a house and property and maybe one day start a family. I'm looking into being a ROTC instructor and if that does not work out I would continue to pursue my first love, rebuilding performance class race cars and making a small profit. I want to say thank you for a nominating me to be a recipient for this year's fundraising event. Again, thank you! Semper Fi."

Faces of Valor USA will be fitting a complete garage for Sean.
