Murray Moore - Navigator on a B-29 during WWII

Murray was based on Saipan from where he flew bombing missions over Japan during. He was a member of the initial training class at the then top secret Boca Raton Army Airfield in 1943. In this clip, he was a special guest at the screening of a new PBS documentary about the base. The film recounts the history of the base where airmen were trained on the new radar technology that had been brought from England. Today, the land of the old airfield located in the heart of Boca Raton, Florida is home to both Florida Atlantic University and Boca Raton Airport.

At age 101 the evening of the film's premiere, Murray was introduced as the last surviving veteran who trained at the base during the war. His presence surprised and thrilled the audience which led to an enthusiastic response as this handsome and spry gentlemen stood up to take a 'bow.'
