  • Napolitano gives Veterans Day address in Boston

    Boston.com - 11/12/2012

    Kristin Jamison never met her father before he lost his life in Vietnam.

    Marine Cpl. Robert Lewis Curry died in the line of duty after volunteering to take someone else’s patrol.

    Now 46, Jamison called it humbling Monday to hear U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano speak of his sacrifice as Northeastern University added Curry’s name and those of two other late alumni to its Veterans Memorial.

    ‘‘It’s not just the lives of the vets. It’s the families and their loss,’’ said Jamison, a Massachusetts native who lives in Spokane, Wash.

    Napolitano was the keynote speaker at the school’s Veterans Day ceremony, when she also placed a wreath at the base of the Veterans Memorial with university president Joseph Aoun.
