Al Moreno was a Supervisory Special Agent in the Atlanta Regional Office when he retired in 1978. He will certainly be remembered for his calling "come on all you turkeys" in the Atlanta bull pen for the ritual coin flipping to see who paid at the coffee breaks. Al took absolutely no pity on anyone from the "Nawth" (Carpetbaggers) in these games of chance stating that their losses were compensation for Reconstruction.
The following is from his obituary:
