NEXT PROGRAM: Wednesday, 27 March, 2019 – Gather at 0930, Program at 1000 hrs. Location: New Hanover County Senior Resource Center, 2222 S. College Road, Wilmington
Service men and women age 55 and older who participated in any war, any military service, all branches of the military, etc. are welcome to join us on the 4th Wednesday of each month for our program. We have doughnuts and coffee followed by a presenter or film documentary. Note that the schedule does change in November and December due to the Holiday seasons.
On March 27 2019, LTC (Ret) Stephen Moore will present a program about his father, Lieut. Gen. Hal Moore, who served in World War II Korea and Vietnam. He will give the perspective of General Moore as well as his mother’s contributions and a little bit about what he and his four siblings thought about their father’s long service. Most of the presentation will be about his leadership in the I Drang campaign in South Vietnam in November 1965.
If any of you have seen the movie, We Were Soldiers… , Hal Moore was played by Mel Gibson in that very realistic combat portrayal of the Battle for Landing Zone X-Ray.
Bio of Steve Moore:
Steve is a graduate of the United States Military Academy and served 20 years in the Field Artillery including time as a commander in the 7th and 3rd Infantry Divisions. Upon retirement from the Army, he ran his own business until he was recruited by a major IT company to recover troubled projects. After 15 years with the IT company, he used that experience to form his own consulting practice focused on project management and troubled project recovery. In 2015, Steve shut down the consulting practice to follow his heart, fish and write about the great outdoors. Currently, Steve is a regular columnist for Southern Trout Magazine and Southern Kayak Fishing Magazine.
