Lieutenant Morgan McPherson is a junior officer and Jake's bombardier/navigator when the story opens. He and Jake have a strong and trusting friendship, but on the first sortie described in the novel, Morgan is hit in the neck by small arms fire while the plane is flying low over enemy territory, and he bleeds to death. Morgan's death preoccupies Jake for much of the novel, and is the catalyst to his decision to conduct an unauthorized bombing mission.
