Harry Morse

Dedicated to my Grandfather, Harry Morse, who passed away on Monday 9/26/2016 at age 94. Here is a quote from his interview through Dartmouth, where he was class of 1944 and joined the Navy right after Pearl Harbor:

“I applied to the Marine Corps [after Pearl Harbor] and I failed the physical. They said, ‘You’re out of shape…. Get in shape, come back [in a month] and we’ll pass you.’ Meanwhile, the Navy recruiters came through [the campus] and I joined the Navy.”
