Our latest Hometown Hero is Staff Sergeant Adam Buck from Terre Haute.

Adam graduated from Terre Haute South Vigo High School in January of 2002. He had already enlisted in the Army while in high school and left for basic training in April of that year.

After his initial training at Fort Benning, Georgia he was deployed to South Korea for one year.

Adam returned to the states at Fort Campbell, Kentucky with the 101st Airbourne Division.

During his time there, he served three tours in Iraq. After his third tour he was sent to Fort Bliss, Texas and is serving his 2nd tour in Afghanistan.

That's right. Six deployments in 11 years. He is currently serving with the 1st Brigade 1st Amored Division.

It' no surprise why we're proud to bring you the story of Sgt. Adam Buck of Terre Haute, our latest Hometown Hero.
