Adkins is a forward leaning and extremely passionate intelligence professional. In October 2023, Adkins took a late-notice TDY to AMC/HQ to stand-up a Combat Intelligence Cell in support of a U.S. European Command and Central Command contingency where he supported deployed units postured in case of a Non-Combatant Evacuation.

Additionally, Adkins has worked hard to support our Total Force Integration partner, 19th Operations Support Squadron Intelligence, in various exercises and filled critical manning gaps.

Finally, Adkins has continued to stay postured and continuously update leadership on current events and briefings around the clock.
