Roger L. Adams Jr.''s family said he was driven by wanting to help others. "Everything he did was about everybody but himself, I mean genuinely. Even the cars he drove. He always drove the clunkers and gave me the good stuff," said his wife, Teresa. Adams, 36, of Jacksonville, N.C., died June 29 in Baghdad after an improvised explosive detonated near his vehicle. He was assigned to Wilmington, N.C. After nearly 13 years as an active-duty Marine, Adams enlisted in the North Carolina Army National Guard in March 2006. He was an emergency medical technician with the Half Moon Volunteer Fire Department. His wife became a volunteer firefighter. They answered one last call together before his Guard unit deployed in April. In addition to his wife, he is survived by four sons. "I lost the love of my life, the boys lost their dad," said Teresa Adams.
