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 since. 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. Wife and Daughter With Gen Moore at Home in Corregidor He returned to his Alma Mater in 1938 as Head of the Department of Military Science and Tactics and became one of the most popular Commandaiks ever to serve the institution. With General Moore at Corregi dor are his very charming wife and daughter, Ann, both of whom, also are no strangers to Aggie land. General and Mrs. Moore and Ann are well known in the Army and particularly so in the Coast Artillery Corps and their friends are as numerous as their acquaint ances. 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 (Continued on Page 6) Robert F.
