About Me

My photo
A Catholic who follows Rome & the Magisterium. I'm against gay "marriage", abortion, embryonic stem cell research, euthanasia, human cloning. Altar girls, Communion in the hand, Eucharistic Ministers and "Protestant" music in the Church doesn't bother me at all. A proud American retired submarine sailor. Our borders should be secured with a 10 ft. high fence topped by concertina wire with minefields out to 20 yards on both sides and an additional 10 yards filled with warning signs outside of that Let's get energy independent NOW! Back Israel to the max, stop appeasing followers of the Pedophile Prophet. Pro 2nd Amendment, pro death penalty, Repeal all hate crime legislation. Back the police unless you'd rather call a hippie when everything hits the fan. Get government out of dealing with education, childhood obesity and the enviornment. Stop using the military for sociological experiments and if we're in a war don't micromanage their every move. Kill your television, limit time on the computer and pick up a book. God's will be done and may He have mercy upon us all.

Sgt. Ryan C. Adams, R.I.P.

Name: Army Sgt. Ryan C. Adams

Age: 26 of Rhinelander

From: Rhinelander, Wis.

Assigned to the 951st Engineer Company (Sapper), Wisconsin Army National Guard, Rhinelander, Wis.

Incident: Army Sgt. Ryan C. Adams died Oct. 2 in Logar province, Afghanistan, of wounds sustained when enemy forces attacked his vehicle using rocket-propelled grenade fire.

Died: October 02, 2009

(Taken from Sgt. Ryan C. Adams, age 26, died a hero defending our country and our freedom in Logar Province, Afghanistan, as part of Operation Enduring Freedom on Oct. 2, 2009. He was born on Dec. 7, 1982, in Brookfield, the beloved son of Peter and Jalane Adams.

Ryan graduated from Rhinelander High School in 2001 where he is remembered as a star quarterback, baseball player, and golfer. He proudly joined the military shortly after graduation and served his first tour of duty in Iraq May 2003 to April 2004. He was an exceptional soldier who particularly valued his role in rebuilding the infrastructure of Iraq and loved nothing more than serving his country.

Ryan was a community and family man, treasuring the community of Rhinelander, brotherhood with his fellow soldiers, and the love of his many family members. He was most at peace spending time with friends and family and being in the outdoors while hunting, fishing and simply celebrating life.

Ryan truly loved family and friends and time spent together was precious. His compassion for others was infectious and he will be fondly remembered for his support and commitment to the Angel on My Shoulder cancer patient support program.

Sadly, Ryan will never again see the land he helped keep free. We may all find peace knowing that our fallen son, brother, nephew, and friend has found heaven. With Ryan's vision of heaven, he may even now be hunting and fishing and telling stories of his time in Rhinelander.

Ryan is survived by his parents, Peter and Jalane Adams of Rhinelander; his loving sister, Amanda Adams of Rhinelander; aunts and uncles, John (Sally), Joe (Jane), Tom (Nancy), Barb (Scott), Tim (Mary), Annie (Jeff), Mary Jo (Scott), Margaret (Bill), Sue (Steve), Nancy (Bryce), Kathy (Todd), Jane (Dave), Pat (Kris), Judy (LaVerne), Kevin (Janet), Marge (Gene), and Vicky (Joe); and cousins, Matthew, Elizabeth, Jason, Jill, Kris, Julie, Tommy, Melissa, Charlie, Toby, David, Lindsay, Stephanie, Aimee, Sarah, Ben, Heidi, Eric, DJ, Billy, Annie Marie, Danny, Stevie, Mike, Maggie, Jenny, Katie, Kari, Molly, Erin, Christopher, Jamie, Megan, Michelle, Kelly, Allie, Jack, Tammy, Mark, Glen, Jessica, Bradley, LeeAnn, Jodi, Carl, Christine, Michael, and Stephanie. He is further survived by many friends and his fellow soldiers.

Ryan was preceded in death by his paternal grandparents, Jack and Mickey Adams; maternal grandparents, Arthur (Irma) Grochowski and Lorraine Grochowski; his uncle, Paul; and cousins, Melissa and Christopher.

i grew up with ryan. he was one of the kindest men you could ever know. he played baseball with me since we were just kids, as if we are anything more than that now. he and the others he served with were a major inspiration to my enlistment, and my decision to deploy for a second time to afghanistan after my enlistment was up. i only hope that i can try to do the good he was trying to do and to finish what he was so close to finishing here in the stan as well as back home. i will never forget you ryan.
