MADISON – Chief Warrant Officer 3 Dwayne Moorehouse served in the U.S. Army from 1993 to 2009 and transitioned to U.S. Army Reserves.

He was promoted to Sergeant First Class (E-7) in 2002 and attended Warrant Officers Candidate School (WOCS). He left active duty as Chief Warrant Officer 2.

After Basic Training at Fort Jackson, S.C., Dwayne attended Advanced Individual Training at Fort Bliss, Texas. He was deployed to Kunsan, South Korea, for one year, returned to Fort Bliss and was deployed to Taszar, Hungary in 1996.

Dwayne returned to Fort Bliss in 1997 and moved to Ansbach, Germany in 1998 for three years. He was deployed to Incirlik, Turkey; Israel; and Doha, Kuwait.

Again at Fort Bliss, he awaited WOCS at Fort Rucker, Alabama. He eventually deployed to Camp Carroll, South Korea and returned to Fort Hood, Texas. Most recently, he completed Warrant Officers Advanced Course at Fort Gordon, Ga.

“I joined the Reserves immediately following my transition from Active Duty to get my bachelor’s degree in aviation management at Texas A&M University,” he said. He later earned a master’s degree from Colorado Technical University in information technology and project management.

He works for Ballistic Missile Defense System for Wyle, CAS Group, at Missile Defense Agency. Moorehouse will retire on July 20 with 23 years of service.

Dwayne met his wife, Leila Pedroso Moorehouse, in 2007 in South Korea. Her sister Liane Pedroso was in the same unit as Dwayne. Dwayne and Leila married on the Fourth of July, 2009. Captain (Promotable) Leila Moorehouse served in Army Medical Service Corps.

“I would loved to have remained on Active Duty through retirement. However, I was denied the ability to reach ‘domicile’ at 18 years of active service, just 40 days short because the Army makes it a point to avoid paying Active Duty retirements if possible,” he said.

Their daughters are Leilani Grace, 4, and Lily Adeline, 3, who attend preschool at Madison United Methodist Church. The Moorehouses attend First Baptist Church of Madison and were married there.

“We enjoy teaching the girls how to be good, honest people that love God,” Dwayne said.

He is a member of the Warrant Officer’s Association.
