Moore attended Boyd County High School and leaves behind a younger sister, his two grandparents, grandparents, a supportive extended family, friends and a loving girlfriend.
His decorations include the Good Conduct Medal, the National Defense Service Medal and the Global War on Terrorism Medal.

  1. I do love the way you have framed this specific situation plus it does give me personally some fodder for thought. Nonetheless, because of everything that I have personally seen, I really hope as other opinions pile on that folks continue to be on point and don’t get started on a soap box associated with the news du jour. Still, thank you for this exceptional point and though I do not really go along with the idea in totality, I regard the standpoint.
