But by sheer hard work, he improved rapidly and was moved to the big boat for the Henley Regatta. Moore so impressed the midshipmen that he was elected captain of the crew team for the following year He also played football at Annapolis before his 1921 graduation. Ed Moore was a career naval officer who retired as a rear admiral in 1945. First, though, he served with valor in World War II, being the chief of staff to the commander of the Pacific Task Force. For his efforts he was awarded the Legion of Merit and two Presidential Unit Citations.
