He had been overseas for several months, serving as a gunner on a B-24 with the 15th air force in Italy. He completed 50 missions before he was given a furlough to come back to the United States. While in Europe, Sergeant Adams won the Air medal with three oak leaf clusters, the Good conduct medal and two bronze stars.
