Veterans Day Story: 1 Soldier, 3 Lives

Posted: Updated:

  There's a long history of duty in Seth Goehring's family.  Goehring served nearly 2-years in Iraq. His father served in Korea. His grandfather spent 4 years in the Pacific during World War Two.

  Goehring, who's now a father of 3 was on patrol in Iraq, when his first son was born.

S.Sgt. Seth Goehring, National Guard: "I got to meet him 10 days after he was born. I flew into Fargo. So, a little bit different route. But, it made it all the sweeter."

Alicia Goehring, Seth's Wife: "It was a little bitter sweet having him gone. But, we have awesome family. My Mom, his sisters were all there. I always respected veterans anyway, supported the military. But, just having him gone and gone for that long, really made it more personal and made me realize the sacrifices soldiers and their families make."

  The Goehring's have given Christian, the latest addition to their family, the middle name of Andrew, after Goehring's life- long friend from Moorhead, Andrew Nelson, who was killed in Iraq.

Student Choir: "This is still the land of the free… because you gave unselfishly…."

Seth Goehring: "As a Community in general, we do an excellent job of recognizing our veterans and I think it's great to have the opportunity to come here, speak with the children of Cathedral School… tell em a little piece of my story."

  Sargeant Goehring is still on active duty with the National Guard. He works at the Guard Armory in Crookston.
