My deepest sympathies in the loss of your loved one. Take comfort in knowing that he is truly an American hero and the nation is proud of his efforts. He paid the ultimate price for the freedom we all enjoy.

I did not know Sgt. Goodrich but my sympathy goes out to your family. May his bravery and sacrifice be a comfort to you to your grief.

My estimate of him was formed on the battlefield many, many years ago, and has never changed. I regarded him then as I regard him now -- as one of the world's noblest figures, not only as one of the finest military characters, but also as one of the most stainless. His name and fame are the birthright of every American citizen. In his youth and strength, his love and loyalty, he gave all that mortality can give. But when I think of his patience under adversity, of his courage under fire, and of his modesty in victory, I am filled with an emotion of admiration I cannot put into words. He belongs to history as furnishing one of the greatest examples of successful patriotism. He belongs to posterity as the instructor of future generations in the principles of liberty and freedom. He belongs to the present, to us, by his virtues and by his achievements. I have witnessed that enduring fortitude, that patriotic self-abnegation, and that invincible determination which has carved his statue in the hearts of his people. From one end of the world to the other he has drained deep the chalice of courage.

To the loved ones of Sgt. Goodrich,
You have my deepest sympathy for your tragic loss, and my eternal gratitude for your tremendous sacrifice. He gave to me, and to all Americans, the greatest gift a man can give. That's what makes a hero. May God bless you always.
