2004 Inductees


General George F. Moore
General Moore, one of the highest ranking officers from Comanche to serve in the military, commanded US forces in the Phillippines and distinguished himself for bravery in his stand on Corregidor.  The fortress finally fell, and the General, along with his surviving soldiers, endured years of POW torture.

A graduate of Texas A&M, General Moore has been recognized there with an award and even a residence hall named in his honor.  He was responsible for the famous Aggie Muster on Corregidor while surrounded by enemy forces on April 21, 1942.  The event is credited with leading to a change in the way the modern Aggie Muster is observed.  General Douglas MacArthur wrote of Moore:  "No name stands out more brilliantly than the heroic defender of Corregidor, General George F. Moore.  Whenever I see a Texas man in my command, I have a feeling of confidence..."
