Michael Barnwell Silliman

West Point, 1966

Be Thou At Peace

Posted by will hall st. xavier hs class 1962 on March 20, 2012:

As we gather this year (2012) to celebrate our 50th reunion, it will be without our leader, Mike Silliman. His legacy will be discussed and honored, but we will all miss big #20.

Mike was offered a scholarship at all the big named colleges. He chose West Point and the spartan life of a cadet over plush campus accomodations and the life of a BMOC. This one decision spoke volumes as to who Mike Silliman was.

Rest in peace Big Mike....
We love and miss you.
