Joseph H. Moore

Born in Aliquippa, Pennsylvania

Joining the United States Army Air Force, he was assigned to the Airways Control Squadron and later 43rd Bombardment Group, 63rd Bombardment Squadron.

After the July 11, 1943 ditching of "Black Jack", he was awarded the Silver Star for gallantry in action. When the war ended, he was a Major.

After the war, he returned to his hometown of Aliquippa and ran a very successful Insurance business with his father.

He was always involved in flying, and used to take me flying in his Cessna routinely and a very good amateur golfer and won several local championships.

He married but did not have any children. Moore died on September 8, 1994 in Aliquippa, Pennsylvania.

Thanks to Stewart Johnson (Moore's nephew) for additional information.
