Grave markers for Lem A. Morgan in Block 55, Lot 53 of Rosehill Cemetery, Cleburne (Johnson county), Texas.

Lem enlisted in the Army at Dallas, TX on 9 October 1942, his enlistment record carries his given name as "Lim" and that error occurred often in his records.  Earlier in federal census records he was always listed by his middle name of Alban which on the 1940 census was misspelled as "Alwan."

 Pvt Morgan, a medic attached to Hq 1st, was promoted to Corporal on 17 July 1943

Col Morgan was listed as Missing In action as of 6 June 1944 but then later found to have been wounded in action and in hospital.  He returned to the company on 7 August 1944.

Cpl Morgan was promoted to T/4 on 31 August 1944.

On 12 January 1945 T.4 Morgan was evacuated to a field hospital as a non-battle casualty, probably due to frostbite.   He was able to rejoin the company on 30 January 1945.

His military decorations include the Purple Heart, Combat Medic badge and the Bronze Service Arrowhead device, both awarded for Normandy, France Campaign, 6 June 44.

Based on the grave marker inscription of "REV" Lem apparently became a minister after the war.
