Adam Wagner on Finding Strength in His Wife

StoryCorps was back in Austin in November, recording the stories of Central Texas veterans as part of their Military Voices Initiative.

Adam Wagner recently shared his story with StoryCorps facilitator Sylvie Lubow. Adam served in the U.S. Marines for 11 years, including several deployments in Iraq and Afghanistan starting in 2003. During and after his time in active duty, he has found strength in his wife Katie.  

This piece was produced for KUT by Michael Lee with interviews recorded at StoryCorps, a national nonprofit whose mission is to provide Americans of all backgrounds and beliefs with the opportunity to record, share, and preserve the stories of our lives. 

Mike is a features producer at KUT, where he’s been working since his days as an English major at the University of Texas. He produces Arts Eclectic, Get Involved, and the Sonic ID project, and also produces videos and cartoons for KUT.org. When pressed to do so, he’ll write short paragraphs about himself in the third person, but usually prefers not to.
