Morrill initiated the "MAINEiac for a Day" event for the Gross family whose father, Deputy Luke Gross,  was killed in the line of duty for the Hancock County Sheriff's Department. Lorna Gross brought their two children, and each brought a friend for the day's events where they toured the hangar and KC-135, utilized the flight simulator, experienced the boom simulator, and were presented with several MAINEiacs gifts and apparel.

The event was lauded by all and very much appreciated by the Gross family.
