A Death in the Family

Words can’t convey the sadness with which I report the death of Gary “Mo” Morgan.

Veteran wargamer for the Air Command and Staff College. Instrumental champion for board wargaming’s use in the Air Force – designing many himself. Later bringing that expereince to computer wargames to teach young Air Force Officers the principles of Air Power at the Squadron Officer’s College. An instrumental part of John Tiller’s Software efforts, in which capacity I had the honor to collaborate on several projects.

Our hearts and prayers, as a community, go out to Gary’s family. We will honor Gary by dedicating this year’s Connection’s conference in his memory.

We have an unfillable hole in our ranks left by his commitment to this country and dedication to our craft.

    I met Gary during my first Connections conference. When I went home in March I brought back a handful of rules. Gary’s TacAir was one of them. I’m sad to hear of his passing.
