From the "Howitzer" -- 1969

ERNEST CARL ADAMS, Schenectady, New York, B-4

Always a great outdoorsman, the Army and field training were for Ernie. His admiration and love for West Point and its high ideals did not include German. It was an obstacle in his path to success; but he overcame it with a smile and a punt. His fine qualities and many capabilities will provide for a successful Army career.

USMA Classmate, may you rest in peace.
