Edgar Moran may have been a Dolphins fan, but he moved from West Virginia to Pennsylvania where he completed his Senior year High School and he loved hunting the hills in Pennsylvania. According to his Obituary he told his family he joined the Air Force to help his family, Mom and 3-4 sisters. He wanted to buy Mom a car. I heard no mention of Dad. In a letter home he also told them that he wanted to come home with a Purple Heart and a Silver Star. I wrote a letter like that one time, so I can see another guy doing that. Edgar is buried in the Military section of the Cemetery in Chartiers Pennsylvania. He was a choir member in school and was less than one year after graduating when he died in the accident. I should dig out the obit and type it into the e-mail. He got quite a write up for a country that tired of South East Asia. Mike Zak, another SP from NKP gave me the obit copies, and you might remember him, or Roger Robison. I never did find out where Roger went.
