Character Bio

Sgt. Morgan O'Rourke photo
The Sgt. Bilko of his day, he is originally from Steubenville, Ohio. O'Rourke's business dealings involve illegally running the local saloon and an exclusive-rights treaty with the local Indian tribe (the Hekawi) to sell their "authentic" souvenirs to tourists through the shady, undercover O'Rourke Enterprises operation. (Doubly ironic is that Tucker had actually served in the US Cavalry prior to World War II and played a similar "O'Rourke" cavalry sergeant on Gunsmoke). Many of his schemes fail. Apparently the only competent soldier in F Troop, it is mentioned that O'Rourke was a veteran of the Mexican-American War, but nothing is said about the Civil War. Presumably, he spent the war years at Fort Courage.
