"Kenneth Morrison, 73, said he taught his son, Lawrence, the importance of patriotism as a child: Salute the flag and stand at attention for the Pledge of Allegiance and national anthem. ""That boy was an All-American Boy,"" his father said. Lawrence Morrison, 45, of Yakima, Wash., was killed Sept. 19 in an explosion in Taji. He was based at Fort Bragg. Morrison attended Morehead State University and served in the Army between 1979 and 1995. Since 1996, he was a dockworker for the U.S. Postal Service. His son, Larry Morrison, an Army policeman, made a habit of calling his father after every parachute jump. Both had earned jump wings, but the son had gone through the door more times than his father. His father was trained in a variety of medical specialties, finishing out his service in charge of the base clinic at the Yakima Training Center. He graduated from Airborne and Air Assault schools. Kenneth Morrison wasn't surprised his son volunteered for his last mission. ""I'm sure his right arm was the first one up,"" his father said. He also is survived by his wife, Becky.
