This is Captain Adam Snyder, Ethan’s former roommate and West Point classmate. Adam selflessly volunteered to leave the safety of a desk job to lead a platoon during a 15-month deployment in Iraq. He was killed on December 5th, 2007 by a roadside bomb at the age of 26. Adam was an incredible athlete, hometown hero and wanted to be an actor. My favorite memory of Adam is him smiling and leaving $20 on the counter of their apartment, teasing Ethan to take me out on a nice date.
