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

-Theodore Roosevelt-
