Dear family of Cpl. Joshua Watkins,
Yesterday, my wife and I were driving home to Savannah from visiting my mother in Lady Lake, FL. I saw the billboard on I-295, south of Lem Turner, facing northbound traffic, "HOME OF THE FREE BECAUSE OF THE BRAVE." with the picture of Joshua. We were deeply affected by it, as our son is also a Marine. I pray that the thousands of people who see Joshua, and have no military connections, will be just a bit as moved as were were, and take heed of the words they see.
Joshua 's service and sacrifice, along with all of our other military who have made the ultimate sacrifice, should not and will not be forgotten.
Please accept our prayers and condolences.
God Bless you Cpl. Joshua Watkins.
Father of LCpl B.
