James L. Moore Obituary

When he found out one of his comrades in Iraq didn't have family at home writing to him, James Moore asked his own family to write the Marine and send him packages. "The Marine Corps toughened him up, but he was still very sensitive," said his stepmother, Suzanne. Moore, 24, of Roseburg, Ore., was among the 31 killed Jan. 26 when a helicopter crashed in bad weather in Iraq. He was stationed at Marine Corps Base Hawaii. A 1999 high school graduate, Moore enlisted shortly after the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. When his time in the Marines was up, he had thought of going to Montana to train to become a hunting or fishing guide. "James was just an awesome kind of person," Suzanne Moore said. "He could come over and just show up out of the blue, bring you a cappuccino and know exactly how you like it. He was really generous, really good." He is also survived by his father, Garry, and mother, Darlene.
