Brigadier General James S. Moore announced his retirement from the U.S. Army on LinkedIn recently, marking the end of more than three decades as a career Soldier.
Over the last four years, Moore has been featured in US Black Engineer magazine’s “Top Blacks in the Military” list, showcasing assignments as chief of staff of the Army Installation Management Command; commanding general of the 593rd Expeditionary Sustainment Command; and executive officer to the commanding general, Army Materiel Command.
On LinkedIn, Moore also remarked on the significance of having a retirement ceremony at his alma mater, Virginia State University, a historically Black college and university (HBCU) that boasts an award-winning department that supplies leaders to the United States Army.
Moore’s retirement ceremony was hosted by Dennis L. Via, a former Army four-star general and one of more than a dozen officers who are alumni of Virginia State University’s Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (ROTC) program. The hall of fame list includes BG Alfred F. Abramson III, BG (Ret.) Shelia Baxter, BG (Ret.) Leo Brooks, BG (Ret.) Alfred J. Cade, BG Charles R. Hamilton, BG William Thigpen, LTG (Ret.) Alonzo E. Short, Jr., GEN (Ret.) Dennis Via, and MG W.(Ret.) Montague Winfield.
