"Traveling on USO tours and visiting our nation's troops has been awe-inspiring and even overwhelming at times," said Adkins. "Whether I'm walking around a post shaking hands and signing autographs or performing for troops, I am always aware I am in the presence of heroes, and the courage and determination that those men and women show is humbling. It's an honor to get to do that, and I will always jump at the chance to do it for years to come." 
Adkins has a long history of supporting the armed forces and USO, from performing with the West Point Cadet Glee Club at the 2009 USO Gala to visiting wounded troops at Walter Reed Army Medical Center and the National Naval Medical Center at Bethesda. To recognize his patriotism, Adkins has been given the ’07 USO Merit Award, Wounded Warrior Project’s 2010 Talkhouse Award, as well as the 2010 Medal of Honor from the Daughter’s of the American Revolution.
