Glen Willis Morgan was born January 31, 1929 the son of Dale and Blanche (Bleasdell) Morgan in Moville, IA.   He grew up in the Moville area and entered the army in July of 1950.  As a corporal in the army Glen served in the 3rd Engineer Combat Battalion 24th infantry division in the Korean war and returned home in August of 1951.  On December 6, 1952 Glen married JoAnn Bernhardt.  Glen and JoAnn lived in Moville for a short time while Glen worked in a meat packing plant.  In the fall of 1953      Glen and JoAnn moved to rural Kingsley, IA to begin farming.  Glen farmed until his retirement in 1991 at the age of 62.
