Our Visit to Sgt. Mom – Part II

Evelyn Moore “Sgt. Mom” passed away on July 26, 2014.  A brief view of her Facebook page by her daughter Mary Alice shows just how much of an impact she had on the lives of those around her.

Sgt. Mom was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s in 2010, but she always remembered to keep people laughing and of her time in the Corps.


We at Taps for Veterans thank Mary Alice for sharing Sgt. Mom with the world and hope that others feel her spirit just as much as we did.

Dedicated to Marine Corps Sergeant Evelyn Cavanaugh Moore (’50-’55), known as “Sgt Mom”. At 90 yrs old, she was the true definition of Esprit De Corps!
