"To the family of Lance Cpl. Kevin A. Lucas: I just wanted you to know that Adam will be mentioned in our memorial service this Sunday at St. John's United Methodist Church. The following will be said, " One former St. John's member that gave his life in combat was Adam Lucas. Adam went to
Greenwood High and moved to North Carolina his senior year in high school. He worked for
Athony Ola at the shoe store. He died in Iraq 6 years ago, yesterday on May 26th, 2006.

I would like to read from an article in the Wall Street Journal, May 29th, 2010 entitled
Remembering Adam.

The young Marine, who went by his middle name, Adam, was killed by a
sniper insurgent while on patrol in Ramadi, in Iraq's Al Anbar Province,
March 26, 2006. Lance Cpl. Lucas had volunteered to relieve a
Marine in his squad from taking the lead during a foot patrol, known
as point. He knew his squadmate's wife was expecting a child any day.

"You have a son ready to be born and you need to be there," Lance Cpl. Lucas had
said. "Something big is going to happen today and I'm ready for whatever happens."

He was killed by a sniper's bullet a half hour later.

A part of Adam is with us still at this church. When you walk into the light house
you will notice pictures of the sacraments painted on the wall in the hall of the entrance.
Along with Brad Oxnum, Adam was the one that painted those sacraments on the wall.

Each time we walk into the light house let's remember Adam and his selflessness. Also
today let's be in remembrance for those who have died in our nation's service.""
