Edwin Truitt Watson, a retired educator and World War II veteran, died of cancer Thursday at Gilchrist Center for Hospice Care. The Rodgers Forge resident was 82. Born and raised in Salisbury, Mr. Watson left home at age 14 and spent several years hopping freight trains -- evidence of his "adventurous spirit," said daughter Theresa Heller of Joppa. "He was a kid who couldn't stand being on a chicken farm." At 18, he joined the Army and served in Europe in the latter part of World War II. On Dec. 24, 1944, his company, the 287th Engineers, was taken off the transport ship Leopoldville because of crowding and put on a Belgian cattle boat for transport across the English Channel to Cherbourg, France.
