Norbert George Moser was born in Pierceton, Indiana, to the immigrant German merchant Gabriel Moser and Illinois native Anna Miller on 18 September 1885. Shortly after completing high school in 1904, Norbert enlisted in the U.S. Navy and became an electrician's mate, working with new wireless radio technologies. He served on board the USS Virginia (Battleship No. 13) stationed out of Hampton Roads in 1910, and when he married Julia Hall in 1914, Moser was stationed at the Chelsea (Massachusetts) Naval Hospital.
