Spec Adam James Harting
Birth: Dec. 8, 1983
Crown Point
Lake County
Indiana, USA
Death: Jul. 25, 2005, Iraq

Spc. Adam J. Harting of Portage, Indiana and his twin brother gave their father letters when they were young saying they wanted to become soldiers. The letters were actually contracts that they both had written. Adam graduated from Portage High School in 2002 where he spent time in the School's ROTC program. He and his brother, Alex, both were speaking with military recruiters long before the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001 and those attacks sealed their decision to sign up. Adam was interviewed by Time magazine in 2003 for being one of the youngest soldiers, then 19, to arrive in Kuwait as part of the Iraq operation. Adam is survived by his father, Jim Harting and his mother, Katherine Brown. Also surviving are his eight brothers and sisters. He was killed when an improvised explosive device detonated near his Bradley fighting vehicle in Samarra, Iraq. He was 21.
