Someone mentioned that Leora Wilson seemed to have several family members who’ve served in the armed forces, so I decided to see if I could come up with a list. Here’s what I found:
World War I
Three brothers: Merl, Wayne, and Jennings Goff–served in France with the 88th Division
World War II
Two brothers: Rolla and Clarence Goff.
I think Merl Goff also did war work.
Five sons Delbert, Donald, Dale, Daniel, and Junior
Dale, Danny, and Junior were pilots in the U.S. Army Air Force.
A nephew Merrill Goff, U.S. Marine, USS Pensacola
A son-in-law Warren Neal, U.S. Army Air Force pilot
Grandson Bob Scar, U.S. Marine pilot
Grandsons-in-law Guy Kidney (U.S. Air Force) and Larry Willoughby (U.S. Navy)
Great Grandson Ken Scar, U.S. Army photojournalist, Afghanistan
