Major William E. Adams Veterans Clinic Dedication

About 150 people watched as the Craig Telehealth Clinic was dedicated on July 20, 2012 to Major William E. Adams, a local war hero. Adams was killed in Vietnam, when the helicopter he was flying was shot down, while he was trying to extract wounded soldiers. Adams was posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor. Speakers at the dedication included Adams’ son Colonel John Adams, Craig Mayor Terry Carwile, and representatives of Mark Udall, Michael Bennet and Scott Tipton’s offices. Representatives of various veterans groups, and the V.A. Medical Center were on hand to answer questions about the clinic, personal benefits, and other topics during the following open house.
