Morgan was born on August 12, 1992 in Attleboro, Massachusetts, grew up in Pawtucket, Rhode Island, and enlisted in the Navy after graduating from William Davies Jr. Career and Technical High School in Lincoln, RI four years ago. He was an aviation ordinance airman assigned to the aircraft carrier USS Harry S. Truman and had recently returned from a nine month deployment, during which the ship's air wing flew more than 2900 combat sorties in support of Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan. Morgan was a fine young man with plans for higher education in the sciences after his service in the Navy. He was an avid reader and loved swimming and the ocean. He grew up caring for and sharing a great love for animals of all varieties. Morgan will be remembered for his beautiful smile, and as a true, caring and trusted friend and shipmate. As a family member Morgan always lifted spirits, lightened hearts, and brightened each day with his warmth and intelligence. In his short life he genuinely touched many people and served his country with honor and respect.
