He was a Lieutenant Colonel in the U.S. Air Force, Commander of the 612 Tactical Fighter Squadron, Service # 296280579, and he was married.

He was Killed In Action 26 January 1967 Tuyen Duc Province, South Vietnam. Morgan was conducting a strike mission over a target in Tuyen Duc Province South Vietnam. As the attack began, pilots in other aircraft on the mission observed smoke trailing from Morgan's F100D Super Sabre. His plane burst into flames and exploded into three pieces prior to impact. Investigations of Morgan's crash site were conducted in 1967 and 1968 by American investigators, but no remains were located. A joint U.S./Vietnamese recovery team in 1994 excavated the crash site and found human remains.
