I s'pose it's better late than never.
RIP James "Patches" Dennis Watson III
Did you hear about this Matt? One of your brothers fell last year.
Not stated in the obit, but I believe he was also a ST6 plankowner. The “Patches” nickname is because he had been to more schools than anyone else, thus had more patches than anyone else.
Quite a read if you click through to the obituary.
I’ve met him, didn’t know him. He wrote a good book about VN “Pointman.”
God Keep and Bless Him in heaven!
