Craig N. Watson

Fallen Hero’s Hometown and State: Union City, MI

Rank: Lance Corporal

Lance Corporal Craig N. Watson joined the Marine Corps on the delayed program right after 9/11. He left for boot camp three weeks after his high school graduation in 2003. He was on his second deployment to Iraq in December, when he was killed while conducting combat operations against enemy forces, along with nine other Marine Corps.

Craig made people laugh. He was a protector of people and would not put up with anyone being mean or bullying others.

He stood up for what he believed in and fought to protect his country.
