Comments/Citation
Cpl. James Lee Moore was hard on the outside, but sensitive on the inside and had aspirations of becoming a hunting and fishing guide after ending his stay in the Marine Corps.  Jim Early, Moore's counselor at Roseburg High School in Roseburg, Ore., said yesterday that Moore fit in well with any number of different groups at the school.  He graduated in 1999.  Moore, who would have turned 25 a week from now, had been in Iraq since July.  He was scheduled to return to the United States in April or May.  Three Marines in dress blue uniforms came to the door of Moore's father, Garry, and stepmother at about 9 p.m. Wednesday.  They saw the Marines through the window before they knocked.  Garry Moore, who said he had a sick feeling in his stomach all day after hearing of the crash, knew the reason for their visit.  "I already had this feeling that he was gone.  And when I saw the Marines, I knew," he said.
