VICENZA, Italy -- Maj. Gen. Joseph P. Harrington, the U.S. Army Africa commanding general, recognized Brig. Gen. Kenneth H. Moore Jr., the U.S. Army Africa deputy commanding general and Army Reserve Engagement Cell director, and his wife Pamela for their contributions to the USARAF community and mission in a ceremony held July 12, 2017, on Caserma Ederle in Vicenza.

“What is great about this ceremony is that it shows the value of the couple and what the Moores – not just Ritchie Moore, but Ritchie and Pam Moore – have brought to the community and have brought to the continent of Africa,” Harrington said.

Harrington presented Moore with the Legion of Merit for exceptionally meritorious conduct in the performance of outstanding services and achievements. Moore also received the Winfield Scott Silver Medallion, a civil affairs regiment award presented to veterans of the regiment who have demonstrated the highest standards of integrity, moral character and professional competence and served selflessly in support of the U.S. Army Civil Affairs Regiment for 20 years or more. The medallion is presented to just 13 recipients annually.

Pamela Moore received the Outstanding Civilian Service Medal and the Dr. Mary E. Walker Award, which is presented to an outstanding military spouse for dedicated and exemplary volunteerism that improved quality of life for Soldiers and their families.

The brigadier general, who will serve as the special assistant to the U.S. Africa Command commander for his next assignment, expressed gratitude for the opportunities the couple has had and people they have met during their time with USARAF.

“It’s been an amazing four-year journey, from the day I got the call that I was being selected for general to four years of experiences that I never imagined that I would possibly have,” Moore said. “It’s been truly amazing and I want to say thank you to each and every one of you. (USARAF is) in an amazing place compared to where we were on July 1, 2013. We are in an amazing place and we’re moving forward. I hope in my future assignment I’ll be able to help USARAF continue that trajectory.”
