The survivor of the Bataan Death March pens a sentiment in black felt tip on this index card
Autograph Sentiment signed: “Best Wishes/ Abie Abraham/ Ghost of Bataan” in black felt tip, 5x3. Abie Abraham (1913-2012) first enlisted in the Navy in 1932, and then enlisted in the Army in 1934. While stationed in the Philippines during WWII, Abraham was captured and endured the Bataan Death March. A POW, he survived three and a half years of imprisonment to be rescued by the 6th Rangers. At the request of General Douglas MacArthur, Abraham stayed behind to help disinter and identify bodies, ensuring that they were honored with proper burial rites. After returning stateside, Abraham worked as a recruiter and was stationed in Germany for a time before he retired from the military in 1955. Abraham then worked as a bartender and was subsequently employed as a foreman for the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation in the 1960s. He is the author of two books: Ghost of Bataan Speaks (1971) and Oh God Where Are You? (1997) and regularly volunteered at the VA Hospital in Butler, Pennsylvania. Fine condition.
