#HonoringVets: Lucian Adams

2 min read

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
