Past Commandant
Of A&M Gets Rapid
Promotion to the Job
Brigadier General George F.
Moore, United States Army, A. &
M. graduate of the class of 1908,
took command of the United States
Defenses of Manila and Subic Bays
in the Philippine Islands on Febru
ary 15, 1941 when he relieved
General Walter K. Wilson, United
States Army, who was ordered to
return to the United States. Col
onel Moore’s promotion to the rank
of Brigadier General was only re
cently announced by the War De
partment and his assignment to
this most important post, particu
larly in view of the very serious
situation in the far east at this
time, is very clearly indicative of
the War Department’s high regard
for, and complete confidence in the
keen ability of another Texan, who,
incidentally, passed also through
the files of Aggieland, later to at
tain a mark in his chosen field to
which Aggies everywhere can just
ly point with pride.
General Moore was born in Aus
tin, Texas on July 31, 1887. He
was graduated from Texas A. &
M. College in Civil Engineering
with the Class of 1908 and accept
ed appointment in the United
States Army as a Second Lieuten
ant of Coast Artillery Corps in
1909. By 1917 he had attained
the rank of Captain and in May
1917 he was appointed Major in
the Ordnance Department and was
From The Texas Aggie
later the same year promoted to
Lieutenant Colonel; however, af
ter the World War he I’eturned to
the Coast Artillery Corps with
which he has served continuously
General Moore is a distinguish
ed graduate of the Coast Artillery
School, a graduate of the Advanced
Course, Coast Artillery School, and
of the Command and General Staff
Brig. Gen. George F. Moore
School and the Army War College,
respectively. He was appointed
Major in 1920, Lieutenant Colonel
in 1934, Colonel in 1938 and Bri
gadier General in December, 1940.

General Moore has served two
previous tours on Corregidor and
is therefore especially well quali
fied to command these important
defenses, the successful manning
of which requires a very thorough
knowledge of the numerous practi
cal, technical, and tactical elements
involved. Fort Mills is unique in
many respects. It is known as
“THE ROCK” and just that it is
indeed—a huge “stigray” or “tad
pole-shaped” rock rising to an al
titude of some six hundred feet
and lying about midway of the
channel at the entrance of Manila
Bay. Vegetation is prolific and the
climate is the most delightful in
the vicinity of Manila all year
round. It is only about two and
