Stories

Fred Kenneth Moore, born 17 December 1921, at Campbell, Tex., enlisted in the U.S. Navy 31 July 1940. Onboard Arizona at Pearl Harbor, 7 December 1941, Seaman Moore remained at his station on antiaircraft gun No. 1 in spite of orders to take cover when the Japanese strafing became severe. With two other members of the guncrew, he assisted in keeping the gun in operation until he was killed by an explosion. Seaman 1st Class Moore was posthumously awarded the Navy Cross “for distinguished service, extraordinary courage and devotion to duty, and disregard for his own safety.” Source: http://www.history.navy.mil/danfs/m14/moore.htm
