County Council President Bud Otis will honor Katharine Moore, Alma Palm and their families for the loss of their beloved PFC James Moore, Jr., a paratrooper who died in action in Vietnam on April 2, 1966. He was 19 years old.  The family has mourned his loss for over 52 years.

“It is long overdue that we show our gratitude and profound appreciation for those who put their precious lives on the line for our country during one of the most contentious times in our nation,” said Council President Otis.  “They bravely and selflessly answered the call of duty. We hope to share a heartfelt tribute to PFC James Moore, Jr.’s family.  It is a long time in coming, but not too late to recognize the tremendous sacrifice this family has given to protect our country.  We want to honor him as a hero and extend our deep and solemn appreciation to his family.”
