Joseph S. Moroz Jr., an Army photographer known for taking portraits of generals, died on July 7. Cause of death was not released. He was 84.
Moroz enlisted in the Army in 1940. After graduating from its photography school in Denver, Moroz was sent off to war. While stationed in England, he flew on reconnaissance missions to photograph the German sites the allies planed to bomb.
Moroz so loved his job that he kept reenlisting in the Army until he’d served for 22 years. Once retired from active duty, Moroz took a civilian job at Fort Sheridan in Highland Park, Ill., taking pictures of visiting generals and dignitaries. When Queen Elizabeth visited the U.S., the Army flew Moroz to Washington, D.C., to photograph her.
