Last Known Activity

Since enlisting in the Navy in 2003, Finan trained in explosive ordnance disposal and as a naval parachutist, an enlisted surface warfare specialist and a diver, according to a Navy spokeswoman. Finan’s 18 awards and decorations included the Navy-Marine Corps Commendation with Combat V, the Army Commendation Medal and the Joint Meritorious Unit Award, among several others.

A senior U.S. defense official said the service member was in an armored vehicle traveling with Iraqi special forces northeast of Mosul when the vehicle hit a roadside bomb, causing it to rolling over. The Sailor was taken by medevac to the Kurdish regional capital, Irbil, but died of his wounds.
