Until his death in 2009, Vietnam veteran Charlie Sabatier was a leading advocate for disabled veterans after he was paralyzed by a bullet on the first day of the Tet Offensive in 1968. This weekend, his name and five others will be added to the more than 58,000 that are already etched into the Vietnam Memorial Wall in Washington, DC.

We speak with his widow, Peggy Griffin, who will be in Washington for the ceremony on Sunday.
