JOSHUA J. NIX, LCDR, USN
Joshua Nix '30
Date of birth: May 20, 1908
Date of death: March 1, 1942
From the 1930 Lucky Bag:
Legion of Merit
From Hall of Valor:
SYNOPSIS: Lieutenant Joshua J. Nix (NSN: 0-63211), United States Navy, was awarded the Legion of Merit (Posthumously) for exceptionally meritorious conduct in the performance of outstanding services to the Government of the United States during World War II.
General Orders: American Battle Monuments Commission
Joshua is listed on the Class of 1930 panel based on the date he was declared dead (November 25, 1945) rather than when Edsall was sunk.
It also appears that he was promoted while in a missing status. All other contemporary references have him as a Lieutenant.
