Spring Grove Cemetery, Cincinnati, Ohio
Specialist Donald Morrison enlisted in the military after his friend Brandon Haunert was killed in Iraq in 2008. His basic training and MOS (Combat Engineer) was at Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri. He then stationed at Fort Hood, Texas and was on base during the 2009 shootings at the Readiness Center. In January of 2010, Scott was deployed to Afghanistan where he was killed when his vehicle was struck by a roadside bomb.
Scott’s superiors said he was an extremely valuable and versatile soldier. He was an accomplished vehicle operator, gunner, and sapper with the 584th. More than just a good soldier, to members of his unit, Scott was a true friend. He was also a big sports fanatic and avid Bengals fan.
Donald was always there to help anyone with their problems, personal or professional. His personality, blonde hair, and smile earned him the nickname “Sunshine” in his unit.
