  • Nathan's pictures

    Then there were ten. Photos of George Nathan Davis have been found.
    In late August and early September it was found that George had attended the Susie Gibson High School in Bedford, VA. A search of the internet discovered that the Susie Gibson High School and their graduates had a Face Book Page as they had saved their old school building.
    A graduate of that high school named Fanny Crider helped put us on the right track to find the photos, only after she checked us out to make sure we were on the up and up. Then she got in touch with George's brother Richard Davis who only lives about 90 miles from me. He had previously been given the only photos still existing of George from his uncle.
    Richard prayed about whether to trust the association with his brother's photos and decided to let us post them on the Virtual Wall. There are four photos and two have seen their better days but it is important to save them all of them for future generations to see.
    I invited Richard and any of his family to attend our reunion to learn about anything more attendees remember about the ambush in Tam Quan of the 137th on July 22, 1968 and told him where the Memorial is located. When Richard and his family attend please welcome them and help them with any memories of July 22, 1968.

    Our thanks go out to all the members of the classes of The Susie Gibson High School who saved the school; Fannie Crider; and Richard Davis and all of George Nathan Davis's family. Without all of their help we could never have found the photos.
    Also to Jose who helped try to post a request on The Susie Gibson website, enhanced the photo's and submitted them to the virtual wall.

    Dear PVT George Nathan Davis, sir

    As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.

    May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.

    With respect, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir

    Curt Carter

    It's because of your sacrifice that made it possible for us to receive the V.U.A. some 42 years later.

The Wall of Faces

Brought to you by the organization that built The Wall, the Vietnam Veterans Virtual Memorial Wall is dedicated to honoring, remembering and sharing the legacies of all those who died in the Vietnam War. Here you can go beyond the names on The Wall to see the faces, share the stories and read the remembrances posted by friends, neighbors, classmates and family members.

All of these photos will be showcased in The Education Center at The Wall on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. To learn more about the effort to collect these photos and ensure their faces will never be forgotten, visit www.buildthecenter.org.
