I worked in the same organization at Ft Belvoir with "Mo" during the 60's and early-70's. I remember him as someone worthy of emulation for his dedication to duty, professionalism, and his upbeat personality. I know he will be sorely missed as he was at our last annual luncheon in May, 2012. God rest his soul. Tom Purnell, Woodbridge, VA

Moe was one of a kind. He was a very special man and a father to me. He guided "us", the young ones, during our first days and weeks as new employees at Fort Belvoir. He also provided guidance to me during the entire time that I knew him. He will always be in my heart and I will cherish the memories forever. He has stars in his crown for heaven. Boots, all my love to you.

I don't know where to start. This man was so special to my life - even though I had not seen him in quite a while. Aunt Boots - our love to you. Uncle Moe - one of my favorites - you will always be close in my memory. You will be missed.
