Ensign Joshua Kaleb Watson Memorial Fund

Josh Watson was a man with many titles. He embodied the best of what a son, brother, teammate, family member, and officer should be. Josh was Officer of the Deck during the NAS Pensacola shooting in the early hours of December 6th. After being shot multiple times, Josh escaped the building and informed law enforcement officers of the location and description of the shooter. This action saved countless lives - in short, Josh died a hero. We, his Naval Academy class, will continue to honor his life through our service to our country.

The Class of 2019 and all who support us mourn with the Watson family, and know that no amount of money will begin to heal the hole in their hearts. That being said, we would like to contribute in our own way and ensure his family knows we deeply care. All proceeds of this fundraiser will be given directly to Josh's mother. We ask for your support and prayers during this difficult time as we memorialize Josh, our hero and brother.
