50 years have gone by brave soldier.

You remain in our thoughts Guy. You were an inspiration to me and all those around you. I valued you advice which I solicited on pretty much a daily basis. You were one of a kind! I have no words that can adequately describe your strength and valor.

Camp Gorvad (Phuoc Vinh firebase) was next to the village of Phuoc Vinh, north of Bien Hoa in Bien Hoa Province, RVN. On February 23, 1969, Camp Gorvad was mortared by the enemy, one of several mortar and rocket attacks the Viet Cong and North Vietnamese launched on Saigon, Da Nang, Hue, Bien Hoa Air Base, and other key targets throughout South Vietnam. Five Americans were killed during the attack on Gorvad, including SFC Guy F. Abbott, SP4 James Berends, SGT Daniel L. Poff, SFC Edward B. Steele, and SGT David H. Sundquist.

Chess Game

I knew SFC Abbott only slightly in Delta Company. During a late afternoon break on his last day, he asked me to play chess on a pocket chess set. We made only a few moves before the light became too dim. I never saw him alive again.
