Mr. Vincent A. Abbatiello (1991)

Mr. Vince Abbatiello’s legacy to the Signal Regiment is his more than 45 years of teaching. First serving as a Signal soldier in Europe during World War II, he owned a radio and television repair business in the Bronx after the war before relocating to Fort Monmouth, N.J., in 1951 as a Signal School instructor.

When the Signal School moved to Fort Gordon, Ga., in 1975, however, Mr. Abbatiello elected to remain at Fort Monmouth. By 1976 he became supervisor of the technical branch, Product Assurance and Industrial Training School. After he retired in 1990, he returned two days later as an electronics teacher in Communications-Electronics Command’s Concurrent Engineering Directorate.

One of Mr. Abbatiello’s greatest successes during his four-decade career was his patent in 1955 for inventing the Ultra Modulation Unit, a device that increased the range, coverage and effectiveness of amplitude-modulated transmitters. He also received the Meritorious Civilian Service Medal in 1967, the second highest civilian award. Mr. Abbatiello earned more than 150 letters of appreciation and commendations over his career.

Mr. Abbatiello died in early 1995. He was inducted as a Distinguished Member of the Signal Regiment in 1991.
