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.

Wreaths were waiting to be hung and Christmas lights illuminated the dining room. Amidst all the holiday decoration, photos of men and women in the United States Armed Forces surveyed the scene, coinciding with this year’s theme, “I’ll be Home for Christmas.”
