July 14, 2018
Point of Contact: Chaplain Pat Archuleta
As we continue our focus on the brave acts of the “Four Chaplains” who gave their lives to save others, this news release will highlight the second of the Four Chaplains in this month’s news release.
Alexander D. Goode was born an outstanding athlete and scholar. Following his father’s footsteps, this young man known for his laughter and love of life, became a rabbi. While studying for his calling, he joined the National Guard and kept up an active membership. The return of the body of the Unknown Soldier had a profound effect on Goode. He attended the ceremonies, choosing to walk the thirty miles rather drive or take a bus, because he thought it showed more respect. Goode married his childhood sweetheart and was serving at a synagogue in York, Pennsylvania, when World War II broke out. He served on active duty from August 9, 1942 until February 3, 1943′
