Sgt Shawn Galen Adams
Birth: Mar. 1, 1986, USA
Death: Jul. 22, 2007, Iraq

Sgt. Shawn G. Adams of Dixon, California was a graduate of Vanden High School. He came from a military family. His father and grandfather served in the Navy, and Shawn showed a warrior's spirit from an early age. At 5 feet 10 and 160 pounds at his heaviest, the blue-eyed, blond Adams played center in his junior year for Vanden High School's varsity football team, often out-muscling larger opponents during a winning season. Father and son took trips together to watch drag races at what was then Sears Point Raceway in Sonoma County. At around 9 years old, Adams was allowed to drive mini-dragsters. He became hooked on the sport. He was offered a chance to study nuclear power with the Navy, but he wanted to do something a little more exciting. Shawn would have celebrated his first wedding anniversary in less than a week. He died in Owaset, Iraq, of wounds suffered from an improvised explosive device at age 21.
