A Fort Bragg soldier will receive the Army’s highest award for heroism outside of combat on Monday.

Staff Sgt. Adams, who is assigned to the 3rd Special Forces Group, has been awarded the Soldier’s Medal for saving the lives of two people involved in a deadly crash near Asheboro in October 2016.

Adams is not being identified by his first name because of the nature of his job as a Special Forces soldier. He will be honored during a ceremony on Fort Bragg.

According to a citation for the Soldier’s Medal, Adams distinguished himself by disregarding his own safety to save lives.

Officials said Adams was traveling east on U.S. 64 near Asheboro when he witnessed a vehicle with two women and two children travel off the road and down a hill, hitting several trees.
