Community and Patriotism

When Jean Moore found out about a run to benefit the Airborne and Special Operations Museum, or ASOM, she decided to cover the cost of the race for any employee that would like to participate. I have come to know the Moore family as great patriots in the years that I have worked for them. In fact, their only son is in training to become a soldier and Steven and Jean are incredibly supportive and proud.

The ASOM, located in downtown Fayetteville, is one of the most prominent landmarks in our city. The museum is a part of the US Army museum system but is also partnered with a non-profit foundation.

Several Moore Exposure employees, family members and friends turned out for the 5K event – all in uniform, proudly sporting a Moore Exposure tee shirt made especially for this race. Everyone finished the race in good time, including employee Sweetie Stewart who pushed her granddaughter in a stroller the whole way.

Not only was this an opportunity to show patriotism, but also a show of civic duty and pride for the city of Fayetteville.  In wearing our company tee shirts, we wanted to display our solidarity in how much everyone at Moore Exposure cares about our military and our community.

In the ASOM’s front yard were more than a thousand American flags – a Field of Honor with each flag tagged in honor or in memory of a service member. Not surprisingly, Moore Exposure was a major sponsor of this event as well.

It was uplifting to see the masses of runners and spectators who came out in droves to support the museum. I was certainly proud to be a part of the fundraiser and equally proud of my counterparts from Moore Exposure.
