Columbia FWCO Names Boats in Honor of Captain Jeff Finley
Midwest Region, April 1, 2010
Print Friendly Version

As many of you know, Columbia FWCO biologist Jeff Finley is currently serving in Iraq with the 480th Preventative Medicine Medical Detachment unit of the Army Reserves. 

Being away from home and family for a year, while putting himself in harm’s way, is a huge commitment and sacrifice, which Jeff has tackled with great dignity and patriotism. 

In honor of Jeff’s service to our Country we have renamed two of our boats.  The boats were rechristened Mustang- 6 and Roman- 6, in reference to Jeff’s call signs while stateside and in Iraq. 

We hope this small gesture conveys the great gratitude we have for Jeff’s service.  We look forward to the day when Jeff returns and can cruise the Missouri River in the boats named in his honor.
