Paul John Finken

West Point, 1989

Be Thou At Peace

Posted by Dennis Fuller on August 22, 2008:

Though I am not a West Point Alum., I wanted to honor a man of great leadership. While serving in Iraq (03-04) Maj. Finken was my Batt XO of 1/187 Inf, Leader Rakkasans. I did not know him in a very personal nature, however, this news is completely saddens me.

Paul Finken was a genuine man and a good leader that always greeted me with "Bom dia, Fuller" (good morning in Portugese) as he knew I was studying the language for a post- deployment trip to Brazil. He was a great person, that at the very least added to the morale of a young enlisted Infantryman while in a warzone.

Lt.Col. Paul Finken, Thank you, You will not be forgotten!

Dennis Fuller
