Moore is a Black Hawk Pilot CW2, MOS 153 Delta UH 60 serving the Army at Camp Zama, Japan. His duties are to fly the UH-60 helicopter, and be tactically and technically proficient.
Why did you Join the Army?
I joined for the training and experience I could gain from the Army as a pilot.
What do you like best about the Army?
The opportunity to travel and see the world. Doing what I love as an Aviator. It’s been nice to be able to do that as a family so far.
What was has been the most challenging part of your Army career so far?
Going through flight school was tough. In training you need to make sure you are prepared and ready. The best part of training was flight school graduation. The hardest part of training was SERE School (classified). The maneuvers involving muliti ship formations performed low & fast with lots of radio traffic can be challenging as well. You must be alert and listen carefully. It’s also challenging to be away from home.
Where was the training and prep for your MOS?
I attended the US Army flight training school in Fort Rucker, AL.
What has been your favorite experience so far?
Flying in Okinawa and working with Special Forces.
What was the most rewarding experience?
Being able to provide a safe and secure home for my family.
How does serving affect your family?
Again, it is hard when we are apart.
What is your advice to someone who wants to fly Black Hawks?
If it is something you truly want to do then go for it. Get a warrant officer packet and go to flight school. The only way you have to choose your ship is to outdo all of your classmates by studying, working hard and being in the top of your class.
THANK YOU CW2 TRAILSON MOORE FOR YOUR SERVICE!
As a wife, what do you like best about the Army?
I like that it has taken us to places we would never have gone before and given us a chance to meet some of the best people. We have made some great friends along the way.
What is your advice to other Army wives? (Does it help to join organizations on base and which ones are you involved in?)
Yes, I do think it helps to join organizations. Whether it's something on or off base. It can be a good way to meet and get to know people, and also keep you busy when your husband is gone. I have been involved with MOPS(mothers of preschoolers) which is an off base group. As for on base, I've been a part of PWOC, Protestant Women of The Chapel and FRG, Family Readiness Group.
Overall, how do you feel this experience has been for your family?
Although it's come with some challenges, I feel our overall experience has been really good. It has helped us to become adaptable to change and to be ready for anything. I also feel very blessed that my husband is able to fly and do what he loves and that I am able to be with the kids.
THANKS TO KAYLA AND ALL ARMY WIVES EVERYWHERE FOR THE SUPPORT THEY GIVE TO THEIR SOLDIERS AND OUR COUNTRY!
