Not Forgotten

I have not forgotten you. I chair the Adoption Committee for The National League of Families of Prisoners of War and Missing in Action in Southeast Asia. We will always remember the 1,889 Americans still unaccounted for in Southeast Asia and the thousands of others that lost their lives. We will not stop our efforts until all of you are home where you belong.

We need to reach the next generation so that they will carry on when our generation is no longer able. To do so, we are attempting to locate photographs of all the missing. If you are reading this remembrance and have a photo and/or memory of this missing American that you would like to share for our project, please contact me at:

Source: Compiled by Homecoming II Project 15 June 1990 from one or more of
the following: raw data from U.S. Government agency sources, correspondence
with POW/MIA families, published sources, interviews. Updated by the P.O.W.
NETWORK 1998.

REMARKS:

SYNOPSIS: PFC Ralph E. Moore was a rifleman assigned to Company B, 2nd
Battalion, 35th Infantry, 25th Infantry Division. On May 3, 1967, Moore was
serving as the pointman on a fire team on a search and destroy mission in
Quang Ngai Province, South Vietnam. As Moore crossed a hedgerow, members of
his unit were knocked down by the blast of what was believed to be an
exploding mine.

When the unit organized a search for Moore, he was not located. His wallet
and helmet liner were found some distance from the site but nothing else was
found associated with Moore.

It was speculated that the mine, which may have been as large as a 250 pound
explosive device, detonated at or near Moore's position and that the effects
located had actually been blown off him, and that no remains would ever be
found. Although it was believed that Moore was dead, the possibility of
finding remains at some future time was not ruled out.

CACTI FOREVER

B Company, 2/35th Infantry, 3rd Brigade, 25th Inf Division.
We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
For he to-day that sheds his blood with me
Shall be my brother; be he ne'er so vile,
This day shall gentle his condition;
And gentlemen in England now-a-bed
Shall think themselves accurs'd they were not here,
And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks
That fought with us upon Saint Crispin's day.
