Phillip Fred Arnold
Birth: Sep. 3, 1946
Georgia, USA
Death: May 17, 1970
Quang Tri, Vietnam

WO (Warrant Officer) - W1 - ARMY - RESERVE
101ST Airborne Division

RECIPIENT OF THE PURPLE HEART AND THE AIR MEDAL


Phillip Fred Arnold began his tour on April 5, 1970; he was killed May 17, 1970. His death is listed as Hostile/Helicopter Crash - Crew/Air Loss, Crash on Land.

His body is listed as recovered, but all paperwork that I have found states that his burial information is unknown.

His survivors are listed as his wife, Norma - I will not list further information about her at this time, as I do not know whether she is still presently living; his mother, Mary V. Caldwell, and a separate notation of parents being a Mr. and Mrs. Henry Arnold in a different city and state, and so I am assuming that his father may have re-married at this point in time, and there is a step-mother in the paperwork, but her name is not listed.

At this time, I do not know anything about Phillip, but I am trying to track down information, and would appreciate hearing from anyone at all who may visit this page.

There is some notation that Phillip was from Columbus, Georgia.

He is memorialized on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall, Panel 10W, Line 55.

This page is being placed online on what would have been Mr. Arnold's 66th birthday.

"These heroes are dead. They died for liberty - they died for us. They are at rest. They may or may not sleep in the land they made free, under the flag they rendered stainless, under the solemn pines, the sad hemlocks, the tearful willows, and the embracing vines. They sleep beneath the shadows of the clouds, careless alike of sunshine or of storm, each in the windowless Place of Rest. Earth may run red with other wars - they are at peace. In the midst of battle, in the roar of conflict, they found the serenity of death. I have one sentiment for soldiers living and dead: cheers for the living; tears for the dead." ~Robert G. Ingersoll

RIP, Sir.

(A big Thank You to Ed Stallings for the additional information about Phillip, as well as the Wall rubbing - it is greatly appreciated!)
