GI was back in Georgia on 30-day leave from S. Korea

FITZGERALD, Ga., Oct. 3 —  Danielle and Tirrell Moore have 150 million reasons to quit the Army and return to civilian life. The couple bought the winning ticket for the Mega Millions multistate lottery and won a $150 million jackpot while on leave from South Korea. They chose to receive a lump sum payment of $88.9 million, and now plan to ask the Army for releases.

“IT MAKES NO sense to stay in the Army,” Tirrell Moore said Thursday. “I have loved it. I’m just going to relax and get my head together.”
Danielle Moore added: “I love the military. I’m not so sure if it’s as easy for me to give it up as it is for him, but I have to go with my heart and my husband.”

Tirrell Moore is a chemical decontamination specialist with the 520th Maintenance Company. His wife has served as a helicopter electronic technician with C Company, 52nd Aviation Regiment. They are both staff sergeants.

The couple was married in a civil ceremony eight years ago while stationed at Fort Drum, N.Y. With the new infusion of cash, the 27-year-old from Tampa said she wants to renew their vows in a church.

“It will be a party,” Tirrell Moore said.  

Her husband has long claimed that someday he was going to win the lottery, Danielle Moore said. But when he returned from buying tickets this week, she didn’t like the numbers and sent him back to the fast-food store to try again.

The Moores are due to return to the South Korea on Oct. 16. They say they may ask for an extension considering their change of fortunes.
