CHICAGO (CBS) — On January 4, 1984, the Rev. Jesse Jackson brought then Navy Lt. Robert Goodman home. Jackson had negotiated Goodman’s release after he was held captive in Syria.
As CBS 2’s Suzanne Le Mignot reports, both men were reunited today, after three decades.
“I’m certainly glad to be here first of all,” said Retired Navy Lieutenant. Commander Robert Goodman. “There was no previous template for this strike, for this event, for this release,” said Goodman.
