    MICHAEL ABSTON is two and stands tall - as tall as the soldiers who gathered at Orlando, Fl., to present a Purple Heart medal to honor his father who died in Vietnam. Mike and his mother, Mrs. James Abston, will find comfort later in the medal, pinned to his jacket, but at the presentation the boy felt closer to his stuffed rabbit. AP WIREPHOTO

    DEAR PFC ABSTON,

    Today is the birthday of America. I feel it is important to remember those who paid the ultimate price for this nation.

    There would be no celebration without our military. THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE.

    REST IN PEACE.

    YOU WERE IN THE SAME UNIT AS AA FRIEND'S BROTHER.

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.
