Army Capt Adamouski was assigned to the 2nd Battalion, 3rd Aviation Regiment, Hunter Army Airfield, Georgia. Adamouski was killed when his UH-60 Black Hawk helicopter crashed in central Iraq. Raised in Springfield, Virginia, and high school class president, James was a graduate of the U.S. Military Academy at West Point where he played soccer and was good enough to play for a professional team when he was stationed in Germany. "Anything with a ball he loved," said Meighan Adamouski, his wife of seven months. "He drove me nuts watching sports, but he let me watch the Home and Garden Network. He was great that way." James had just been accepted to Harvard Business School and planned to teach economics at West Point after earning a master's degree in business administration. He frequently reassured his mother: "I'll be safe, and I'll fly low, and I'll fly fast." "I wanted him in tanks," said his mother, Judy Adamouski. "But he'd always tell me, 'Mom, the Black Hawk is the safest helicopter the Army has.'"
