Guardsman returns home bearing flags: "YUCCA VALLEY — Everyone needs motivation. Teachers are motivated by their students, performers by their audiences, medical professionals by their patients. For deployed service members, the motivation behind their self-sacrifice is often patriotism. A shining red, white and blue example is Army Sgt. Eric Adamsen of Yucca Valley, assistant convoy commander with the California National Guard, who has taken it upon himself to thank some of the folks back on the home front for their support.
While on leave from his deployment in Southwest Asia this month, Adamsen was guest of honor at a celebration at Yucca Valley’s Burrtec facility, where his wife, Tes Adamsen, is employed as a customer service representative."
