Last Known Activity

PhM1 Morgan was stationed with the 1st Battalion, 4th Marine Regiment. The regiment arrived at Subic Bay in late 1941. They then moved to Bataan where they fought until March 1942 when they moved to Corregidor. There they fought until becoming prisoners of the Japanese on 6 May 1942. Morgan and many of the other prisoners were held in a POW camp in the Philippines until 31 December 1944 when they were placed on a ship to be taken to Japan. Of the numerous prisoners, Morgan was one of 550 men who survived the trip to Japan. Unfortunately, he died shortly after his arrival at Camp Moji Fukuoka. He was first buried at the prison camp and later his remains were taken to Fort William McKinley in the Philippines for burial.
