Private Abraham served in France with Headquarters Company, 29th Division.[6] He was awarded the World War I Victory Medal. The 29th Infantry Division ("Blue and Grey") is an infantry division based in Fort Belvoir, Virginia. It is a formation of the United States Army National Guard and contains units from Maryland, Virginia, and North Carolina.
Formed in 1917, the division quickly gained the nick-name "Blue and Gray", reflecting on the fact that it comprised soldiers from states on both sides of the American Civil War. Deployed to France as a part of the American Expeditionary Force during World War I, the
division saw intense combat in the final days of the war, and suffered heavy casualties. At the end of the war, it demobilized, though remained an active National Guard unit. [O'Neill, Arthur. (2012). "They Served". Amazon. 1. 69.]
