In Response to: A Ritchie Boy

I very much enjoyed the article about Professor Victor Brombert and his experiences as a Ritchie Boy. In fact, I was inspired to read the book by Beverley Driver Eddy in which he features prominently. I was pleased to learn from the book that future Princeton president Robert F. Goheen ’40 *48 h’70 was also a Ritchie Boy. He served as an intelligence officer in the Pacific and completed his service as a lieutenant colonel. His service and courage were exemplary as well, and I hope PAW will do a follow-up article about him.
