1st Class Michael Moores trip to the Commissary in
January proved anything but routine. The 703rd MI Brigade
S3 Operations NCO noticed an apartment complex manager
attempting to revive a jogger, who was lying on the
ground. The jogger was another resident, Jerry Balcer,
who had been jogging when he collapsed in front of
Manager Lee H. Denny.
Moore stopped his vehicle
and ran over to assist. He quickly checked for a pulse,
but Balcers heart had stopped beating.
Moore dialed 911 for help
on his cellular phone, then started cardiopulmonary
resuscitation a skill he learned in 1980 while
member of a volunteer fire department. Moore continued
CPR for several minutes while Denny assisted with chest
When the emergency team
arrived, they prepared to shock Balcer in an attempt to
restart his heart. They instructed Moore to continue CPR.
Balcer survived the heart attack and was treated in the
Intensive Care Unit at Kapiolani Medical Center at
Pali Momi, Hawaii.
When Denny contacted the
hospital later that night, he was told if Moore and Denny
had not been present, Balcer might have died.
"It was a good
feeling, but yet, when I was giving (Balcer)
mouth-to-mouth, he had the dead stare. Once I knew he
lived, it was a good feeling."
Moore was awarded the Army
Commendation Medal for his courage and quick action. (Submitted
