The history of the 10th Mountain Division runs deep in the North Country. On Thursday of last week, Keene Valley's Jim Goodwin passed away at the age of 101.

Goodwin was a celebrated teacher and mountaineer, who first started guiding in the Adirondacks at the age of 12. He later trained many of the 10th Mountain Division's soldiers. He later served as a medic during the Italian campaign. In 1997, Brian Mann sat down with Jim Goodwin to talk about his life in war and his life in the mountains.
