Tomb Guards Never Forget… Adam Dickmyer

8 years ago

Today marks the two-year anniversary of the loss of Adam Dickmyer. He was killed in action on this day in 2010, in the Kanda-har Province of Afghanistan, protecting our freedoms.

Adam was a husband, son, brother, friend, soldier, and Tomb Guard. He is dearly missed by his family, including all his Tomb Guard brothers. Soldiers never die until they are forgotten, Tomb Guards never forget; #528 - you are not forgotten.

Please visit his in-memory page here to read his obituary and leave a memory or an expression of condolence.
