Building dedicated to Abie Abraham, a Death March Survivor

Recommended Posts

There is a new building dedicated to Abie Abraham, called the Abie Abraham VA Clinic Healthcare Center in Butler, PA. His wife told me this fantastic news in a Christmas card. Here's to you Abie. Thank you for letting me know about this, Chris. Glad we are keeping in touch.

S/Sgt. Abie Abraham was stationed during WWII with the 18th infantry in New York; 3 years with the 14th infantry in Panama, there he was a light-weight boxing champ and trainer; 15th Infantry, unassigned in China, while the Paney was sunk; 30th Infantry, Presidio, San Francisco; 31st Infantry, Manila, Philippines, there for nine years. He fought , was captured, endured the Bataan Death March, as a POW for three and a half years, was beaten, stabbed, shot, survived malaria and starvation to be rescued by the 6th Rangers.  He stayed behind at the request of Gen. Douglas MacArthur, two and a half more years disinterring the bodies of his fallen comrades, from the Death March and the prison camps.  He helped to identify their bodies and see that they were properly laid to res.. M/Sgt Abraham was promoted in 1945.  He came back to the U.S, where he served as a recruiter.  He also served a few more years in Germany until his retirement, with 30 years of service.
