MAJ Adam Bushey, a New York attorney and real estate broker, is the Founder and President of the 501(c)(3) non-profit Responsive to Our Community, Inc (ROC).
MAJ Bushey attained his undergraduate degree from Le Moyne College where he graduated Magna Cum Laude with a double major in political science and economics. Upon graduation, MAJ Bushey was awarded the Le Moyne College Award for Community Service due to his extensive volunteer efforts, including a campus wide volunteer day in Syracuse.
Before entering law school, MAJ Bushey worked for the New York State Assembly. After graduating from the State University of New York (SUNY) Law School at Buffalo with Honors in 2007, MAJ Bushey became a U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) Presidential Management Fellow.
In 2008, MAJ Bushey joined the NY Army National Guard. In 2010, he deployed with the 86th Infantry Brigade Combat Team (IBCT) to Afghanistan, which was the first National Guard Brigade to be given ownership of its own Battlespace.
MAJ Bushey coordinated the IBCT Rule of Law (ROL) and governance efforts to: (a) offer Afghans meaningful access to fair, efficient, and transparent justice; and (b) help increase the Afghan government’s legitimacy and improve its perceptions among Afghans by promoting a functional and efficient judicial system. He achieved success in these areas through the support and assistance of the nine Afghan attorneys and one Afghan engineer he supervised. During the deployment he was promoted to the rank of Captain.
Both the military and USAID have recognized MAJ Bushey’s strong performance. He has been awarded the USAID Superior Special Acts Award and the USAID Meritorious Honors Group Award. In December 2010, he was awarded the Bronze Star Medal for meritorious service during his ten-month deployment in Afghanistan.
