Biography

Over a span of 39 years of active-duty service, General (R) Robert B. “Abe” Abrams led troops through times of peace and war. Hardened on the E-W German border during the cold war, Abrams led combat troops in Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Iraq, and Afghanistan during multiple combat tours. These tours spanned Operation Desert Storm, Operation Iraqi Freedom, and Operation Enduring Freedom including his command of the famed 3rd Infantry Division. He also commanded the Army’s crown jewel of training, The National Training Center at Fort Irwin California. Serving as the Senior Military Assistant to the 24th Secretary of Defense during times of unprecedented uncertainty, volatility, and complexity – from Russia’s invasion of Ukraine to the meteoric rise of ISIS – Abrams was provided with both unique and direct access to decisions made at the highest level of the DOD and U.S. government. Along with this, Abrams commanded the Army’s largest formation of over 750K soldiers and DA Civilians for over 3 years and increased Army readiness by 500% across all three components, all while managing a $3.2B annual budget. His final assignment as the Commander of United Nations Command, the ROK-US Combined Forces Command, and U.S. Forces Korea spanned the period of two U.S. Administrations characterized by emerging détente, the breakdown in negotiations with North Korea, the increase in military tension and the first 18 months of the pandemic gave him incredible insight across the entire political-military sphere regarding Korean peninsula affairs.
