Royal Norman Moore Jr. (born April 15, 1935) is a retired major general in the United States Marine Corps.[1] He was Commander of Fleet Marine Force, Pacific from August 1991 to April 1, 1992. In 1992 after it was discovered that he had previously falsified a NATOPS EA-6B proficiency test by having a junior Officer complete the test for him, and submit it as his own results. He resigned his command after the discovery, which led to a censure by Secretary of the Navy H. Lawrence Garrett III, and his retirement.[2][3][4] From 1989 to 1991, he also commanded the 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing during the Persian Gulf War, a war in which he was described as "the nation's top Marine aviator".[5]
