Valor Awards – Korean War

Hal Moore earned 2 awards for the Bronze Star Medal for Valor. One was submitted as a Silver Star, but later downgraded to a Bronze Star.

Note that both were awarded for action while he was a staff officer. The first was when he was the S3 (Operations Officer) for the 17th Infantry Regiment, and the second was while serving on the G3 (Plans and Operations) staff of the 7th Infantry Division.

Unlike some staff officers, he spent time on the front, sensing the ebb and flow of the situation and sharing the risks with the troops.

Hal Moore Bronze Star for Valor Citation
Please sign the petitions to rename Fort Benning and Fort Rucker

Whether you like the idea or not, federal law requires all bases named for Confederates be renamed.
Let’s help them make the right choice for Fort Benning and Fort Davis!
Beyond the individual contributions of Hal Moore, renaming Fort Benning also recognizes the equally important contributions of the military spouse and family.
His many accomplishments make General Davis deserving of this honor – even more so when you see how he had to overcome crushing prejudice to achieve greatness.
