Born in 1968 at Fort Bragg in Fayetteville, North Carolina, United States Navy veteran Lieutenant Kevin Adcock was inspired by his father and his grandfather to join the military. Lt. Adcock recounts his life before, during, and after his 11-year military service. He remembers the stories of war that his grandfather told him of his time in the U.S. Navy. These stories, along with those of his father’s service in the U.S. Air Force, piqued his interest in the Armed Forces.
Lt. Adcock lives his life in a way that allows him to continuously help others while also living his life to the fullest. After serving as a Public Affairs Officer in the Navy, he returned to The Citadel and is currently helping cadets in any way possible while serving as the Mike Company Tactical Officer. He encourages cadets to do what makes them happy because then they will never have to work a day in their lives. He advocates for us to participate in as many different community service and volunteering opportunities as possible. This interview provides viewers with insight into Lt. Adcock’s lifelong commitment to serving others along with his fostering this commitment in the Corps of Cadets.
