One Man’s Service To The Community & Nation

By Rich Malfitano

OneManAfter a successful career in retail management in both Louisiana and Texas, Jim “Moe” Moyer a U.S. Coast Guard veteran and his lovely wife Ginny now enjoy their retirement in Lake Wales, Florida. Jim was always active in his community and spent countless hours volunteering to support veterans and active duty service man and women. He has a deep-rooted concern for American servicemen who were left behind from all past wars, Prisoners Of War-Missing in Action (POW-MIA). Jim has been a long time volunteer for the Keep America Beautiful program where he served as a supervisor and served on the Board of Directors for the Planning & Zoning commission for the City of Cocoa.

In 1998 Jim attended “the Ride for Freedom” in Washington D.C., an annual demonstration for the accountability of Prisoners of War and Missing in Action. Already committed to the cause, he joined the National organization, Rolling Thunder, Inc. Jim excelled to leadership levels and served as the Director for Chapter’s 1 and 6 in Florida and later served as the State Director overseeing 14 chapters within the states of Florida, Georgia and Alabama. In 2013 Jim resigned from Rolling Thunder Inc. and founded a new national Prisoner of War (POW) advocacy organization, “Honor Release Return Inc.”, in which he is presently Co-Chairman. Its mission is clear; working for the repatriation of live Americans POW’s in any form or captivity world-wide, and to educate the public on the Prisoner of War and Missing in Action issues. Jim is also the founder and chairman for The Ride Home, Inc. A national scaled annual event in observation of National POW/MIA Recognition Day, held in cooperation with the National Prisoner Of War Museum in Andersonville, Georgia. If that isn’t enough, Jim is also currently serving as the Chairman of the Board of Directors for the newly chartered USO Central Florida, Inc. So much for retirement! Jims lifelong commitment volunteering for the POW-MIA cause, veterans of all wars and those presently serving our country, is second only to that of his wife Ginny and their family who has been 100% supportive . On February 2nd 2015 Rich Malfitano of Rolling Thunder Fl. Chapter 8, certifying official for the President’s Council on Service and Civic Participation, under the authority of the PVSAP, presented Jim “Moe” Moyer the Presidents Volunteer Service Award for his life-time service to community and nation. Thank you “Moe” for all you do for so many, and for your inspiration, reminding us that “When One American Is Not Worth The Effort To Be Found-Then We As Americans Have Lost”.
