    George and I where best friends growing up.Lots of great times hunting and fishing. Cruising around in Georges 55 chevy. Last time I saw George was on a bridge south of Da Nang he was going north and I was going south.We just stopped in the middle of that bridge yelled at each other.It was great to see him.Not long after that I got the news he had been killed it was devastating and is to this day.

    Dear LCPL George Lee Silva, 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
  • My Uncle

    George is my uncle, his mother is my grandmother, his sister is my mother.. He is truly missed and thought of every day, and although I never met him, I know him from the many many wonderful stories I have been told and photos that I have.. His father, my grandfather joins him as of 15 years ago, but his mother, my grandma, is still with me and I love her so very much! I share my uncles memories with my 3 children so that he will never be forgotten, and we visit his resting place often.. ALWAYS IN OUR HEARTS AND NEVER FORGOTTEN, WE LOVE YOU GEORGE <3

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
