Farewell to Lieutenant Finneran
NOVA nurses, VA Boston staff and SCI Veterans lined the streets outside the VA in West Roxbury, MA on November 9, 2019 to give Lieutenant Finneran the sendoff he deserved. He was killed on August 1, 1943 and his remains were finally being laid to rest beside his mother. It was very touching to see his family roll down their car windows and wave as they drove by in the funeral procession.
