Bruce Goff

Bruce Goff's passing was a surprise to me. It has been many years since I last saw Bruce. He was an outstanding individual. I first got acquainted with Bruce at the Academy, when he started as Firearms Instructor, Armorer, and Harold "Chester" Vaughan's Segundo. I have no idea how many recruits he taught to shoot, nor how many Officers he helped with his patience and knowledge. He did every thing with confidence, experience and calm behavior.

May he rest in peace. Ralph Coulter

Essence of this Website

It is not the critic who counts. The credit belongs to the man in the arena, who face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again. [H]e who...spends himself in a worthy cause...knows his place shall never be with those timid and cold souls who knew neither victory nor defeat.

-Theodore Roosevelt-

There are supervisors that you do your job with because it is your job. There are other supervisors that show you every day, the Honor and Respect all of us crave, need,…
