He is known worldwide as a specialist in commemorative medallions and lapel pins, and has worked on nearly 2,000 unique designs on what Army customers call challenge coins. He has in his office more than 1,000 individual challenge coins on display, which has become a local point of interest. "Shortly after I entered the business community in 1993, I joined MAC to reconnect with Fort Bragg," Moore said. He had previously worked as an Army civilian employee in the public affairs field for 10 years. At age 22, he first came to Fayetteville to work at XVIII Airborne Corps, and later would be transferred to the Special Ops side, back when it was called 1st SOCOM. "While I would say I initially joined MAC for social reasons, I came to realize that, post 9-11, MAC plays a crucial role as our community's most outward and visible sign of support for our neighbors, who happen to be soldiers constantly deploying in and out of dangerous places."
