Army Staff Sergeant Lucian Adams received the Medal of Honor in 1945. After the war, he joined VA in 1946 as a benefits counselor in San Antonio, saying it was because “of the great number of Hispanics that served” who lived there. He said, “I thought I would be helpful in seeing that they received their just benefits that were due to them under the GI Bill.“ And that’s what this quiet American hero did for 40 years until he retired in 1986—serve his fellow Veterans.
Adams died in 2003. He was buried with full military honors at the Fort Sam Houston National Cemetery in San Antonio. From serving in WWII to helping Veterans at VA, to resting in our National Cemetery, Adams’ life is the embodiment of the embodiment of the American Dream: a young boy from a Mexican American family fought for the American dream, then lived it. Watch VA Secretary Denis McDonough tell his story. #HonoringVets
Greetings my name is Rich,
I own U.S Veterans and I am a Veteran. I am making a website to help and inform US Veterans. I have many sites I own so I am a little slow at times. For those of you that have been following me this is my final answer for this website U.S. Veterans! I will be populating and updating it over the next few months as the site grows I hope to open it up more for veterans to log into and help and inform others of their experiences by early 2021.. I hope you find something helpful here and be sure to check back for updates. I have many news sites, you will find the RSS Feeds for those sites on U.S. Veterans.
