2013 Veterans Day ceremony

Members of the Northeastern University community observed Veterans Day at the Veterans Memorial at the Neal Finnegan Plaza, where ROTC cadets laid wreaths commemorating alumni who lost their lives in conflict. The event featured speeches from Colonel Richard F. Johnson, Commander of the 26th Maneuver Enhancement Brigade in the Massachusetts Army National Guard; Neal Finnegan, BA’61, H’98, Chairman Emeritus of the Northeastern University Board of Trustees; Student Veterans Organization President Adam Beatty; and Army LTC Blaise Gallahue, Chair and Professor of Military Science. The names of fallen Northeastern University alumni William Thomas Cloney III, U.S. Army and Class of 1969, and Benjamin William Fuller, U.S. Army and Class of 1914, were added to the Veterans Memorial wall.
