Abstract:
Born in western Wake County in 1894, Goodwin later served as a Pharmacist's Mate 1c with the 6th Marines on the Western Front during World War I. With them he fought through some of the most famous battles in American military history--Verdun, Belleau Wood and Bouresches, Chateau Thierry, St. Mihiel, Mont Blac, and the spic Meuse Argonne Offensive. Among his awards and citations were the Navy Cross, Croix de Guerre (France), Silver Star, and the Second Division Citation awarded for actions on June 6, 1918 and for actions at Thiaucourt on September 15, 1918. Goodwin returned to Wake County and practiced medicine until a few days before his death.
