Technical Sergeant Goss was drafted into the Army (Infantry) in 1945 and served until 1946 in the 947th Field Artillery Battallion. He was sent to the Philippines when they were still planning an invasion of Japan. However, that did not need to happen after they dropped the atomic bombs. He was interviewed by Suzette McCord-Rogers on Jan. 29, 2007. He was born north of Troy on October 21, 1926. He used the G. I. Bill to attend Highland Community College for half a year. He then got a job working for the Post Office in Highland, where he worked the rest of his career. The 2005 Kansas Legislature passed a bill funding the WWII Veterans Oral History grant program. This transcript is from one of the nine community institutions that received these grants. The transcript from the interview is presented here; the original video copy of the interview is available through the Doniphan County Historical Society (Troy) and through the Kansas State Historical Society.
