Japan Coast Guard recovers U.S. soldierā€™s body after deep-wreck scuba dive off Okinawa | Stars and Stripes

The body of a U.S. soldier who went missing off the coast of Okinawa while scuba diving has been recovered. Staff Sgt. Matt Morgan was found at 144 feet near the USS Emmons, a sunken World War II warship and a common diving location. Morgan was a dive instructor assigned to Torii Station when he went on a recreational dive with three other divers. After all four surfaced and were close to boarding their boat, the captain noticed that Morgan began to drift away before sinking into the water. After being unbale to catch up with him, the divers called the Coast Guard who were unable to find him until the next day.
