Other Comments:

Despite a stellar career (at the time of his promotion to rear admiral he was the youngest flag officer in the Navy), Admiral Morrison is probably best known as the father of Doors' lead singer, Jim Morrison.

Was a Pearl Harbor survivor while serving on the mine layer, USS Pruitt. Went on to fly combat missions in WWII and Korea.
