Medal of Honor recipient helping Special Forces members attend college | Troy Today

TROY alumnus and Medal of Honor winner Bennie Adkins wants to serve today’s Special Forces in a way that will help them transition to civilian life.

The former Green Beret and retired command sergeant major in the U.S. Army Special Forces spent three tours of duty in Vietnam, serving in some of the most active war zones in the Vietnam theater. His actions during his second tour of duty in the A Shau Valley in 1966 resulted in a Distinguished Service Cross and, in 2014, the Congressional Medal of Honor. He completed his undergraduate degree and two master’s degrees at TROY and launched an accounting firm that he ran for 22 years before retiring.
