Elliot Goodman had just finished law school when he was drafted by the U.S. Army in 1954. He would be trained in field artillery and sent first to Fort Chaffee in Arkansas, then to Fort Sill, Oklahoma. A “lucky break” got him assigned to managing the Army Service School, which assigned personnel (enlisted and officers) to the Army’s various training centers.
