Army Sergeant Scott Adkins
Army Sergeant Scott Adkins joined the military out of his hometown in Sumter, South Carolina because he wanted to provide for his wife and children while carrying out his family’s military legacy,
He enlisted in the Army in 2010 with the hope of making it a 20-year military career. He is still serving our country.
It was in 2014, while Sergeant Adkins was active military, when doctors discovered he had Stage III esophageal cancer during an endoscopy. It has since advanced to Stage IV.
In addition to cancer, Sergeant Adkins suffers from several other injuries relating to his service, including a bilateral knee condition, PTSD, vision loss, neuropathy in his hands and feet, a lower back condition and chronic pain at the base of his skull.
From his years of service, Sergeant Adkins was awarded the Global War on Terrorism Medal, National Defense Service Ribbon, Operation Enduring Freedom Ribbon, Army Achievement Medal (3x) and the Good Conduct Medal.
Sergeant Adkins, his wife April, and their five children will receive a mortgage-free home in Knoxville, Tennessee.
