I had the great and memorable pleasure of getting kicked out of the left seat, "Joe, out of there" by the General when he boarded our C-130 and decided he wanted to fly a particular mission. He was great for remembering names (even of Lts.)and later on that mission he once again remembered mine, "Joe, get my hat." The rest of the story is too long for here. He was as fair and admired a commander as ever put on the uniform and I will keep him in my prayers forever.

I am in awe at the amount of time and dedication Brig. General Watkins has proudly done for our country to keep us free and safe! It is an honor to read about his life! His daughter, Woody, and family must be so PROUD! May God hold him in His loving arms for all eternity. It is his time to rest and I will keep him in my daily prayers and all of you who cherish his memory! God Bless!

What an incredible career, a true hero!! I thank your Dad and all our brave military men who defend our freedoms and make this great country what it is. They are truly an inspiration to us all. When I visit my Dad's grave at Arlington, I will pay my respects to General Watkins. God Love the Fighter Pilots!!!

I served under the General's command at Evreux and at the AF AGOS at Hurlburt AFB, FL. At Evreux, I was a member of his daily briefing team and learned early on NOT to stray from the subject being briefed. He was a good Commander. God's Speed, General! Happy Landings!

I'll always remember Gen. Watkins as as a Wonderful Father to my dearest Friend, Woody. She simply adored this inspiring, intelligent and gentle man. I was honored that she shared him with me and my Family. He was Loved.

It was an honor to have served with B/Gen. 'Jack' Watlins when he was the 322nd ADIV Commander.
He was a real Gentleman who led by example.

Another of the Greatest Generation has passed.

God Speed, Sir. Rest in Peace.
