Rubin Finger enlisted in the Navy in 1945 and served until 1946 in the Boat Crew 15-1. He was born near Powhattan, Kansas on Juy 17, 1927. He grew up on the family's diary farm. Interviewed by Suzette McCord-Rogers on Aug 28, 2007, Finger talked about military experiences in the Second World War. The 2005 Kansas Legislature passed a bill funding the WWII Veterans Oral History grant program. This transcript is from one of the community institutions receiving grants. The transcript of the interview is presented here; the original video copy of the interview is available through the Doniphan County Historical Society (Troy) and through the Kansas State Historical Society.
