Craig Veterans Telehealth Clinic dedicated to Medal of Honor recipient

Hero is a word often used to describe the late William E. Adams, a Craig native and U.S. Army major. But his son, U.S. Marine Corps Col. John Adams, chose another word to describe his father — humble. “He’d probably try to tell you there were a lot of other brave soldiers who did a lot of brave things,” Col. Adams said. “I’m feeling very honored, our whole family feels honored.” On Friday, Col. Adams joined his mother, Sandra, and sister, Jeanne Wayne, for a ceremony dedicating the Craig Veterans Telehealth Clinic, 785 Russell St., in Maj. William E. Adams’ memory.
