    When I started dating my wife over 25 years ago, all I heard was how George was her uncle and her heroe. I was proud when his mother Eloise handed down his dress blues to me and will be displayed in a shadow box when I get a bigger place. My son is also military as he joined the Navy. I've never met him before as I was born in 1973, but everything I have heard and read about him makes me proud to be an American, Marine, brother at arms, and related. God bless you always brother...

    Uncle George you are truly missed. I don't remember you before you left to Vietnam for I was only 1 years old. I was 2 years old when you were taken to Heaven on 3/17/67. But, I feel I do know you. As a child I remember going to grandma!s house and going through your belongings. The certificates, trophies you won in running and your military gear, letters, and pictures you had taken while you were in Vietnam. I really got to know when I started a scrapbook on your life. I started the scrapbook so the next generation of nephews and nieces can get to know you as well. I wanted to keep the promise you asked my mom (Lupe) before you left to Vietnam. You asked her to name the next boy after him and to tell his story. My baby brother bares your name and the scrapbook tells your story.
    You are truly missed and loved,
    Your niece Maria Varela

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
