SPC. MATTHEW T. MORRIS
23 years old from Cedar Park, Texas
2nd Squadron, 3rd Armored Cavalry Regiment
April 06, 2008
“He was a very creative kid, and when he wasn’t in a challenging environment, he tried to make life interesting,” Glenn Morris, father of Spc. Morris, said. “He excelled in a military school structure and in a team environment.”
Before enlisting in the Army in 2005, Morris attended the Fishburne Military School in Waynesboro, Virginia where he met a history teacher who inspired him to want to become an educator.
“After his service, he wanted to go back to school and get a four-year degree to become a teacher,” said his mother, Lisa. “He wanted to make a difference and give back to the community.”
Spc. Morris was killed when his vehicle encountered an IED in Balad, Iraq.
Also killed in the attack was Cpt. Ulises Burgos-Cruz.
