On January 23, 2013, George Toriello sent me this information on John D. Morgan.

He was born on October 8, 1929, so when
John D. Morgan was killed in Vietnam, he would have been
36 years old, and if he had survived, John would have been as old as my father, Tom Meli, who is still alive today, at 84 years old.

Let us never forget the soldier's sacrifice.
