Bennie Adkins served this country for more than twenty years in the United States Army, the majority of his time spent in Special Forces (Green Berets). He was deployed to Vietnam three times, and during his second deployment was involved in heroic efforts which eventually led to the awarding of the Medal of Honor in 2014. After his retirement at the rank of Command Sergeant Major he continued his education, eventually obtaining his Bachelor’s degree and two Master’s degrees from Troy University. He then established his own accounting firm and operated for 22 years until retirement. It is this legacy of service, sacrifice, and commitment that we look to continue by offering educational assistance through scholarships to Special Forces soldiers.
The Bennie Adkins Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization whose aim is to carry on the legacy of Bennie Adkins by providing educational scholarships to Special Forces soldiers. Our hope is to reward deserving soldiers who have demonstrated the courage, sacrifice, and patriotism inherent in the Special Forces, and aid them as they continue trying to improve themselves through education. We strongly feel that providing scholarships to the soldiers will assist as they transition out of the military and into civilian life.
