Lieutenant Commander Goodwin, U.S. Naval Reserve, was a member of Light Photographic Squadron 63, U.S. Navy. On September 8, 1965, he was the pilot of a Vought Crusader Reconnaissance Fighter (RF-8A) on a combat mission in Quang Binh Province, North Vietnam about 5 miles east of Quang Khe just over the Gulf of Tonkin, when his aircraft crashed. His remains were not recovered at the time. In 2017 his remains were identified, but his name is permanently inscribed on the Courts of the Missing at the Honolulu Memorial.
