Some would say 20-years-old is still a child, but it’s different in the military.
A 20-year-old is expected to be as brave and strong as a person twice his age. At least that’s how it was for LaFollette native Dwight Goodman.
December 1965 carries lasting memories for Goodman. He turned 20-years-old on the sixth, and left for Germany the next day. He ran a mission down the Adriatic against the former Yugoslavia air defenses, said Goodman.
His team continued flying into Turkey where they began a series of intelligence gathering missions.
