Sgt Adrian Edward Hike
Birth: Jul. 21, 1981
Carroll County
Iowa, USA
Death: Nov. 12, 2007, Afghanistan

Adrian attended schools in Odebolt, Lake View, Wall Lake, and Sac City (all in Iowa) where he graduated from high school in 2000. He went to work at Casey's General Store before enlisting in the United States Army in 2002. He completed Cavalry Scout training at Ft. Knox, Kentucky. In February 2005 he was deployed to Iraq where he served for a year and received a Purple Heart due to injuries. After several surgeries for his wounds, in 2006 he attended Airborne and Paratrooper training for 8 weeks at Fort Benning, Georgia. In June 2007 he was deployed to Afghanistan, assigned to the 1st Squadron, 91st Cavalry Regiment, 173rd Airborne Brigade Combat Team, based at Schweinfurt, Germany. He was talking about signing up for another term in the military before he died. Adrian lived a theme of selfless service that started long before his military career. He gave up his own security to keep his family together, and never shared experiences with his mom he thought would give her nightmares. His military career shed him of childish habits and crafted him into a true hero. That is how he will be remembered. He was killed when the vehicle he was in was struck by an improvised explosive device in Bermel, Afghanistan. Adrian was posthumously awarded the rank of Sergeant.
