The photo and following article is taken from The Philadelphia Daily News, special supplement entitled 'SIX HUNDRED AND THIRTY,' October 26, 1987. The special supplement was issued in conjunction with the dedication of the Philadelphia Viet Nam Memorial.
The 27-year-old private first class served in the Army from 1960 to 1963 after graduating from Springfield High School and spending two years at Ithaca (NY) College. Before reenlisting in November 1965, Abey worked at the Southern Home for Children on S. Broad Street and at an employment agency. He was sent to Viet Nam, where he was a company clerk with the 25th Administrative Company of the 25th Infantry Division. Abey died at Tan Son Nhut, near Saigon, on March 16, 1966. He was survived by his parents and a brother.
