Joel Richard Watkins was born and raised in Brockton, Massachusetts. He graduated with the Brockton High School class of 1968. He volunteered to serve his country in the summer of 1968. His time in the U.S. Army was from October 1968 to October 1970.

Throughout the pages of Vietnam: No Regrets: One Soldier's Tour of Duty, Author and Vietnam veteran Watkins steps directly in the gap and fills that void in standout fashion. A heart-wenching memoir recounted in unfiltered, no holds barred manner, Vietnam: No Regrets: One Soldier's Tour of Duty takes the reader straight to the heart of one of the most contoversial extended episodes in our nation's history; and, painting the gruesome conflict in a graphic, vivid light - undeniably real and raw.
