Summary

This was my dad and he was a Marine in World War ll. He enlisted when I was about 11 months old. I was born October 01, 1942. His two brothers were in the service too so they told him to stay home and take care of his family including their Mother. My dad couldn't do it so he enlisted. One of his brothers ran into him somewhere overseas and was upset with him for joining but I imagine he really understood it. His brothers were Edward H. Moore, and Paul O. Moore so all three of them were in the service. Their Mother had a daughter with her is all.
