A 1999 Texas City High School graduate and Texas City, Texas native is currently serving with the U.S. Navy’s Strike Fighter Squadron 122, also known as the “Flying Eagles”, stationed at Naval Air Station Lemoore.

Petty Officer 1st Class Joshua Watts is an aviation structural mechanic with the squadron, which the Navy designates as VFA-122, and works with the Navy’s most lethal and versatile strike fighter aircraft, the F/A-18E/F Super Hornet.

“I work with flight controls, landing gear, and hydraulics,” said Watts.

The Super Hornet takes off from and lands on Navy aircraft carriers and is capable of conducting air-to-air combat as well as air-to-surface combat. It is approximately 61 feet long, has a loaded weight of 51,000 lbs., and a max speed of 1,190 miles per hour.

Operating from the sea aboard aircraft carriers, the Super Hornet gives the Navy the power to protect America’s interests anywhere, at any time. The versatile jet has the ability to destroy targets located hundreds of miles inland, without the need to get another country’s permission to operate within its borders.

“I like working with such a diverse group of Sailors,” said Watts.

Watts said he is proud of the work he is doing as part of the squadron’s 1140-member team, helping to protect America on the world’s oceans.

“My job is important because it contributes to keeping the aircraft safe and reliable,” said Watts. I also train and mentor junior Sailors.”

Sailors’ jobs are highly varied in VFA-122. Approximately 220 officers, 660 enlisted and 260 civilian men and women make up and keep all parts of the squadron running smoothly — this includes everything from maintaining aircraft airframes and engines, to processing paperwork, handling weaponry, and flying the aircraft.

“The Sailors here are the epitome of a team,” said Cmdr. Ernie Spence, VFA-122’s commanding officer. “Everyone here is professional, skilled in their job, and they are great team players which enables us to accomplish our mission.”

The Flying Eagles are the Navy’s West Coast Fleet Replacement Squadron for the F/A-18E/F Super Hornet. They train aircrew and maintainers to prepare them to go to the fleet and join the squadrons that fly the Super Hornet. VFA-122 trained aircrews have flown combat missions in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom, Operation Enduring Freedom, and Operation Inherent Resolve.

“The Navy has allowed me to learn a lot of skills and visit new places. It’s a job with a cause,” said Watts.

On Monday, March 16, 2015, at approximately 2:10 AM, Deputies with the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office Patrol Division were dispatched to a robbery that had occurred at a business in the 3600 block of College Park Drive, in The Woodlands, Texas.

Upon Deputies arrival, it was reported that two males entered the store, brandished a handgun, and demanded money from the registers and safe.  The employees complied with the actor’s demands giving them an undetermined amount of money.  Reportedly the actors then fled the location. 
A police officer with the Oak Ridge North Police Department witnessed a vehicle travelling at approximately 100 miles per hour on the Interstate 45 South bound main lanes, coming from the direction of the reported robbery.  The Oak Ridge North unit attempted to stop the vehicle, which originally stopped, but then fled into Harris County.  Agencies from Montgomery County and Harris County attempted to stop the fleeing vehicle, when a Harris County Sheriff’s Office unit was able to utilize a spike strip to damage the fleeing vehicles tires.  The fleeing vehicle began to lose control causing the driver to stop the vehicle, where the suspects exited the vehicle in the area of Greenwood Forest and Boyce Springs.  The suspects fled on foot away from the vehicle.  As the suspects exited the vehicle, the plastic bag they were utilizing to carry the weapon believed to be utilized in the robbery, as well as money from the robbery, broke open causing these items to fall to the ground near the suspect vehicle.  The weapon and money was recovered at the scene. 
Multiple units from several agencies, including canine units, were utilized to search the area for the suspects, with no success.  Montgomery County Major Crimes Detectives arrived at both the robbery scene and the suspect vehicle scene.  Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office Crime Scene Investigators were called out to the robbery location.  It was discovered that the actor vehicle utilized in the robbery was previously reported as a stolen.  The investigation is on-going and investigators are in the process of reviewing evidence. 
Description of the suspects are two black males, wearing all black clothing, “hoodies”, who had their faces covered
The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office is asking anyone with information to call the Major Crimes Unit at (936) 760-5876 or Montgomery County Crime Stoppers.

Crime Stoppers will pay up to a $1000 cash reward for information leading to an arrest or indictment of a felony crime.  Call 800-392-STOP (7867).  Anonymous tips can also be made through the Montgomery County Crime Stoppers WEB PAGE at www.montgomerycountycrimestoppers.org.

By EntertainThis: Spoiler alert! The following contains major spoilers for Sunday night’s episode of The Walking Dead.

As happens pretty frequently on The Walking Dead, one of the main characters fell victim to the zombie apocalypse Sunday night. Noah, played by Tyler James Williams, was killed by walkers in one of the show’s most brutal and graphic death scenes to date. And while both the violence and the loss of Noah were upsetting (we hardly knew the kid!), many fans were taking issue with the fact that show has killed off yet another black character.

Noah is the third black male character to die this season alone, and one of the many black characters to die during the show’s five seasons. And fans were not happy about that fact!
