Brother of Abington Marine builds snow sculpture in his memory


ABINGTON, Mass. ( -- Joe Vasselian used Wednesday's storm to remember his brother in a very special way.

Vasselian built a snow sculpture of a man down on one knee, a finger on one hand pointed to the sky, the other hand clutching an American flag. He then posted that photo on Instagram along with the words, "Love you bro."

Sgt. Daniel Vasselian, 27, died in Afghanistan in December 2013. The 2004 graduate of Abington High School served three combat tours in Iraq and Afghanistan prior to his death.
