About Josh, as written by his family:
"Josh Fetter grew up on video games, airsoft, and science. He joined the US Army straightout of high school. He went to Forward Observer school (Fister) in Ft. Sill, OK, and wasstationed in Ft. Bliss, El Paso, TX. His battalion was sent over to Camp Lemonnier, Djibouti, Africa.
While on base, he worked as security in IED detection and led missions into Syria and Iraq. He also helped train soldiers as a Forward Observer. While overseas, his vehicle was hit by an IED, and in that battle, he suffered what doctors later determined was a traumatic brain injury.
Josh was honorably discharged as a result, and began work as an electric linesman. He rescued a German Shepherd that he named Panzer, bought himself a Boss Mustang, and was part of his local Mustang club. While home, he ended up missing the military and joined the North Carolina National Guard.
He was a huge fan of video games; especially Halo, Minecraft, and the Tom Clancy titles. In December of 2017, from a combination of his untreated TBI and PTSD, he took his own life. Josh’s dogs were a huge part of his life, and the hope is with sales of this pin, we bring further awareness to a great cause while honoring the life he led."
