Pfc. James L. Arnold of Mattawan, Mich., graduated from Mattawan High School in 2004 and was a member of the school's hockey team. He was an enthusiastic hockey player, with school spirit to spare. He helped start the "Blue Crew" to cheer at events. He also enjoyed playing paintball. Jimmy was born the son of Phillip Arnold and Mary Ryan. His father was a longtime member of the Mattawan Fire Department and Jimmy was one of 10 original Mattawan Fire Department cadets who had graduated from a program designed to give teenagers a sense of what it takes to be involved with the fire department. He was a person always willing to help with tasks around the department. Joining the cadet program at age 16, Jimmy took part in fire department cleaning details and pump tests, making sure things were ready to go. He organized any problem and handled odds-and-ends that we needed done. He was preceded in death by his paternal grandparents, Olin and Evelyn Arnold. Died in action in Iraq during Operation Iraqi Freedom at age 21.
