Hero

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

Remembered

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.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear PFC James Estus Abston Jr, 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

More Than A Name On A Wall

Here is a link to a website that has the Statler Brothers performing their song More Than A Name On A Wall.It was performed at The Wall during a special remembrance day. I could just leave the lyrics but I feel it's better to hear the words. They speak to each of us who come here to remember our fallen brothers and sisters.
