The Naples, New York, VFW is named in his honor.
From a comrade-in-arms,
A Note from The Virtual WallAlpha Company, 9th Engineer Battalion, was attached to the 7th Engineer Battalion at Danang. The 7th Engineer's Command Chronology notes that at 0800, 01 March 1967 a Marine from Alpha/9 was reported missing in action about 7 kilometers south of the Danang complex. No further information is provided. Corporal James R. Moore was carried as Missing in Action, and twice promoted in that status, until the Secretary of the Navy approved a Presumptive Finding of Death on 13 March 1978.
The DoD casualty databases for 1993, 1998, 2003, and 2006 give SSgt Moore's Home of Record as Ontario, Wayne County, New York - and all of them are wrong. SSgt Moore's actual Home of Record is Naples, which is located in Ontario County, New York.
