From the 1952 Lucky Bag:

Arthur Henry Moore

Tremont, Pennsylvania

Charlie Ventura, Dizzy Gillespie, or George Shearing—if you ever feel in the need of learning about these musical greats, let young Archie enlighten you. Primary interest in his Academy life was good music, and for four years he played his bass fiddle for the NA-10 in a highly creditable manner. Prepared for the military by Valley Forge and the tasks of higher education by Penn State, Art came to Middyville with a background that has stood him in good stead ever since. Art's love life never got him in deep water, but rather blossomed after second class cruise when the best in talented young Moore was brought out. With a smile, Art will always be remembered as a fine friend and classmate.

He was also a member of the 5th Company staff (2nd set).

Life & Loss

Archie was lost when his aircraft crashed in the Mediterranean Sea on February 20, 1962 while operating from USS Shangri-La (CVA 38). He was survived by his wife and two children.
