The names of five U.S. soldiers are being added to the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington.

A ceremony will be held Sunday morning to honor Army Spec. Charles Sabatier of Galveston, Texas, whose name is being added.

He was wounded in the Tet Offensive in 1968 when a bullet pierced his spinal column and left him paralyzed.

He died in 2009 as a result of his condition.

The names of four other service members will be added over the
next week.

They are: Army Spec. Charles Vest of Lynchburg, Ohio, who
remained in a coma for years before he died; Army Sgt. Henry
Aderholt of Birmingham, Ala.; Richard Daniels of Washougal, Wash.,
who served in the Navy; and Peter Holcomb of Grandy, Minn.
