Building named after fallen Colville Green Beret

December 30, 2014

Considering he was a medic, Sergeant First Class Wyatt Goldsmith probably wouldn’t mind having a medical building named after him. Not that he would personally seek or demand the honor, but it seems an appropriate dedication to a man who made the consideration of other’s well-being one of the top priorities in his all too short life.
Goldsmith, a member of the United States Army’s Special Forces, was killed while serving as a combat medic in the Helmund Province of Afghanistan with Company A, 3rd Batallion Special Forces ODA 1314 in July 2011.
He was 28-years-old.
