Thomas F. Moore

Awarded 11 June 1925

On 26 August 1924, Phillip Gollob was caught in the heavy surf off Ocean City, MD.  He was drawn toward the jetty, then caught by an undertow, and carried out to sea.  BMC (L) Moore, seeing Gollob’s danger, plunged in to his assistance and he too was thrown into the jetty.  He, however, fought clear of it, reached Gollob, and brought him near the shore.  Other members of the station crew assisted the men in landing.
