Justin Watson

Justin Watson


Justin is the latest in a long line of soldiers to bear the family name, but the first to attend, and graduate from the United States Military Academy at West Point, New York. His distinctions as a cadet were as numerous as they were dubious. In the middle of West Point’s forty-seven-month experience, Justin met his future wife, Michele, sitting on a flight from Houston back to the East Coast.

Upon graduating from West Point, Justin commissioned as a Second Lieutenant in the United States Army Field Artillery. Justin and Michele lived in Oklahoma, Germany, Oklahoma again, and Colorado during their time in the Army. Over the course of his ten year career, Justin accomplished a wide variety of missions and annoyed a wide variety of superiors during combat tours in Iraq and Afghanistan as well as training rotations in various exotic locales like Barstow, California, and Kuwait. Justin’s awards include the Bronze Star, the Purple Heart and the Combat Action Badge.

Medically retired from the Army in 2015 as a Captain, Justin and Michele returned to Michele’s hometown of Houston, Texas, where they live with their four children and an exceedingly friendly, but none-too-bright Old English Sheepdog. Justin enjoys tabletop gaming, scotch, recreational shooting, comic books, movies, military history and, of course, reading and writing science fiction and fantasy.
