Goodwin recalls service during Korean War
Paul Goodwin’s recollection of his service during the Korean War is nothing short of precise: he served exactly three years, six months and 14 days in the Army.
Goodwin enlisted right out of high school in 1948 and soon shipped out of San Francisco, en route to Japan and eventually, Inchon, Korea.
“We landed at Inchon with the 3rd Infantry Division,” Goodwin said. “Our combat started about 30 minutes or an hour after we got off the boat. A shell came in and killed a good friend of mine — that was the enlightening part of the whole thing, it scared everyone and let us know we were at war.”
