During the Indo-Pak conflict of 1965. Wg Cdr Goodman led a number of reconnaissance and ground attack missions on Pakistani tanks and troop concentrations, undeterred by heavy air and ground opposition from the enemy.

He was a source of inspiration to all ranks under his command. Under his guidance his unit maintained a very high standard of serviceability, which contributed to a number of successful air strikes on enemy positions.

The gallantry and leadership displayed by Wg Cdr Goodman were in the best traditions of the Air Force.
