1st Lt. John B. Goode
147th Aero Squadron, USAS

Wednesday, October 2nd 1918

Rick invited me to a pink tea when I got out here this morning, that’s his term for a voluntary patrol into Germany, looking for trouble.

Flew at 5,000 meters, spotted 7 Fokkers about 1,000 meters below us, maneuver into the sun for attack but they saw us. Didn’t run, came right at us, climbing. General fight, stalled out, lost altitude, found a Fokker going home and attacked then saw one in rear mirror and reversed, fought him and took left upper wing off, he went into a tumble and crashed.
