Biography

United States Marine Corps corporal who was killed in action during the Korean War, aged 19.

Abrell was posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor for his heroic actions and sacrifice of life on 10 June 1951 at Hwachon, Korea while advancing under fire with his platoon against enemy hill positions. After being wounded twice during a single-handed assault against an enemy bunker, he pulled the pin from a hand grenade and hurled himself into the bunker, killing the enemy gun crew and himself in the explosion.
