Remembering Medal of Honor Recipient Bennie Adkins
We also wanted to pay tribute to Medal of Honor recipient Bennie Adkins, a hero that we recently lost to this disease. Listen to the Army Veteran discuss his experience in the military with Borne the Battle in 2018. Then-host Timothy Lawson wrote about Adkins:
"Bennie's Medal of Honor citation has more action in it than most war movies. He was in battle for 38 hours and was escaping for another 48. In that time frame, he sustained 18 wounds. He fought the North Vietnamese with mortars, machine guns, recoilless rifles, small arms, and hand grenades. There is no type of Veteran that deserves the designation 'hero' more than patriots like Bennie Adkins."
