Godwin was present during a Chinese attack against Outpost Eerie on the night of 21 March 1952.  Godwin alternately treated the wounded at Outpost Eerie and fought the enemy, keeping a machine gun in action throughout the attack.  He was eventually knocked out from a grenade explosion.  He survived the attack after supporting artillery fire drove the Chinese from Outpost Eerie.
