Hudson school honors the only person from city to be killed in Vietnam War

A Hudson High School graduate is being honored more than 50 years after he was killed fighting in Vietnam.

Richard Fina died in combat at the age of 21 in 1968. He graduated from Hudson High School in 1965.

The school, now Willow River Elementary, is honoring Fina.

They dedicated a plaque for Fina that will hang in the school honoring his legacy and life.

"It was something I always wanted that someway they would remember," Jacquie Smith, Fina’s sister, said. "It’s just kind of eerie that he walked those halls and they are walking those same halls, so he’s one of them so that was really comforting."

Fina is the only person from Hudson to die in the Vietnam War.
