Carl was a fun loving person. We all love him and will keep him in our memory. He is survived by his mother, Geraldine Pittman; 3 sisters, Brenda, Regina, and Pamela; 2 brothers, Trent and Bryant; his father, Phillip Morrison, his grandmother, Cora, and many friends.
He was on a hostile combat mission near Phan Tiet, Vietnam. He was 19. He was killed on April 19, 1969 in mid-morning. God bless him.
From his mother,
I was in Carl's Platoon in Vietnam, and arrived in country at about the same time. He was in one of the machine gun squads as was I. He was the only one we lost in our platoon the year I was there. He was much too young to be lost! I often think and pray for Carl, and wonder of his Family and final resting place.
