"12/22/08
Dear Mr. and Mrs. Moore, Tiffany and Candice,

My name is Barbara Lyons and I live in New Orleans. I am not in the military but just a citizen who benefits from the sacrifices you, Stuart, and your family makes. I thank you for your incredible efforts for people all over the world and for our country. In 2004, the local Veterans association presented a grove of flags with yellow ribbons on each in the name of a fallen soldier. After the presentation the flags were sold to assist families. I walked into the grove and placed my hand on a flag. The name on it was Pfc. Stuart W. Moore of Livingston, Texas who died on 12/22/2003 in Baghdad. This flag survived the devastation of my home in Katrina and I display it proudly today in honor of your son, husband, and father. My best wishes to you and know that Pfc. Stuart Moore is remembered and honored at my home each day."
Barbara Lyons of New Orleans, LA

"I am from Livingston, and I am currently in the Navy. I am a Chief Petty Officer Selectee going through transition, and I will be getting pinned on 16SEP08. We were tasked with researching a MIA or KIA from our home town. I immediately thought of your son. I am an Independent Duty Corpsman and went on deployment with the Army last year. This was my first experience with the Army, and they were a truely amazing group of Soldiers. I have read what others have written about your son, and I know that he was a real Soldier. I am thankful for him and his love for his country. I know that you are proud of your son. Your family has paid the ultimate price for our freedom....we all sleep a little better because of you and Stuart. Thank you."

"Just stopping by ...."
Michael J Goss of Corpus Christi, Texas

""Nubb" Moore was one of the best soldier's I have known. Those of you who were not in Iraq with Stuart Moore might not know how hard of a worker he was. When we moved into "Camp Ruhlan", one of Baghdad's largest water treatment facilities, the building did not have any power because of damage from the war and looters. In the first week, Stuart Moore worked for 3 days straight, day and night, running electrical lines and connecting circuits. He wasn't an electrician, he was a 13B, a cannon crewmember, but he had that a can do attitude and a willingness to try, and through his hard work and sacrifice made life a little more comfortable in a hotter part of hell known as Al-Adhamiya, Baghdad.
In Iraq there were those who avoided work and danger, but Stuart was one who never hesitated to roll out the gate. Stuart preferred to be a gunner, a more exposed position,and was not one of those soldier's who only rode in the up-armored HUMVEE's (We only had 2). His courage and strength were truly heroic and put him on the level with the great men who have forged this great nation and kept the kept that Red, White and Blue flying high above the greatest nation in the world.
In closing, Stuart, I miss you, you were a good friend."
SSG Matthew Brixey of Dallas, Texas

"I was lucky enough to have grown up with Stuart. Even when we were kids, he was one of the most genuine guys I have ever known. Over the years, much changed but never the values and attitude that he lived his life by. He was honest, caring and respectful to everyone he encountered. I have nothing but the best memories of Stuart. From the time we were cub scouts until the day we graduated from high school together, Stuart knew he wanted to serve his country. He was great at everything he did, including being a true friend that I will never forget. I miss you so much buddy, and I will always be very, very proud of you."
Collin M. Zeigler of Livingston, Texas U.S.A.

"Thanks man I remember Stuart was a good guy and im serving in the military right now and just am thankful there are more people willing to lay it all on the line for freedom."

Spc Ryan Thompson of Balad Iraq

"It has taken me some time to build up enough courage to speak about this subject for I still remember the day as it were yesterday. I was fortunate enough to arrive to Giessen at the same time as Stuart and we became roomates and ultimatley the closest of friends. I still to this day mourn him and always will...I will never forget that day in Baghdad in which one of my closest friends was taken from me and his loving family. I would love to speak with his family if at all possible. And please don't ever think that anyone will forget him as I know for the rest of my life I will remember him and all of the others who have fallen. God Bless you "Nubb" and your entire family....I miss you brother!"
