PARADE FOR A YOUNG HERO

 

Lou Marzeles

Goldendale ABATE and an honor guard from the American Legion escorted the car down Main Street.

Walter Goik turned 102 last week, and on Friday Goldendale surprised him with a short parade down Main Street in honor of both his birthday and his service in World War II. Goik jumped a German ship during the war, defected to the U.S., and served in the Pacific.

Klickitat County Sheriff Bob Songer and city Police Chief Reggie Bartkowski extended their congratulations, and Ogden led the group in singing "Happy Birthday" on an accordion given to Ogden by Goik.
