BUT USED TO BE IN THE MILITARY! Honorably serving in the United States Navy for a seven year commitment, Adam served with distinction receiving two Captain's and one Admiral's Citations. Adam traveled the world and also served in combat zones during his time overseas. He has further experience spending roughly two years at the Rocky Hill State of Connecticut Veterans' Home in their substance misuse and immediate care programs.
