Morriss was an aircrew member of Operation Senior Surprise, or as it was nicknamed “Secret Squirrel,” a mission that kicked off Operation Desert Storm 25 years ago. Seven B-52G Stratofortress bombers flew for over 35 hours and 14,000 miles nonstop to complete the mission. (U.S. Air Force photo by Master Sgt. Dachelle Melville/Released)
