At the International Order of Odd Fellows Cemetery in West Union, Adams County, Ohio, stands a bronze star-shaped cenotaph, in memory of the young man who never returned home.
Corporal Carey McKinley “Mac” Moore, son of Carey Edward Moore and Lillian R. Tracy, was born December 6, 1896.
He was killed in action at Argonne Forest, Champagne-Ardenne, France, on September 29, 1918, during the Meuse–Argonne offensive while serving with Company L, 148th Infantry Regiment, 37th Infantry Division.
His epitaph reads:
“At the call of duty
He did not falter,
At the hour of death
He knew no fear.”
