Stanley Paul Arendt, age 22 of Palatine, Illinois
A burial service for Stanley Paul Arendt will take place on Monday, March 29 at St. Michael the Archangel Cemetery in Palatine at 10 a.m. Stanley "Sonny," was the son of the late Stan and Frances Arendt, longtime residents of Palatine. Sonny is survived by his sister, Dorothy Stewart of Sun City, Ariz.; his brother, Jim Arendt of Naperville; and numerous nephews and nieces
The Department of Defense POW/Missing Personnel Office recently announced that the remains of U.S. serviceman, Stanley P. Arendt, has been identified and will be returned to his family for burial with full military honors. Representatives from the Army's Mortuary Office met with Arendt's next of kin to explain the recovery and identification process on behalf of the Secretary of the Army. Stanley P. Arendt was assigned to Company L, 3rd Battalion, 8th Cavalry Regiment, 1st Calvary Division. On Nov. 1, 1950, the 8th Calvary was occupying a defensive position near Unsan, North Korea, in an area known as the " Camel's Head," when elements of two Chinese Communist Divisions struck the 1st Cavalry lines, collapsing the perimeter and surrounding the 3rd Battalion. After intense fighting the Battalion was overwhelmed and ceased to exist as a fighting unit. Corporal Arendt and nine other soldiers were captured on Nov. 2, and held as POW's until Nov. 16, when they were executed in a farm field. Corporal Arendt was one of more than 350 servicemen unaccounted for from the battle of Unsan. . Arrangements were made by Ahlgrim & Sons Funeral and Cremation Services, Schaumburg, 847-882-5580.
Stanley "Sonny" Arendt enlisted in the Army in 1948, and was stationed in Japan. He was in the 519th Military Police Battalion
Nearly 60 years after he was reported missing during the Korean War, the remains of a northwest suburban soldier will be returned home for a full military funeral.
And for a Naperville man who was 3 years old when his brother left for Japan, it is an "amazing" conclusion to a lifetime of not knowing.
Late in 2009, the U.S. Department of Defense POW/Missing Personnel Office identified the remains of Army Cpl. Stanley Paul Arendt of Palatine, who will be buried Monday next to his parents.
Representatives of the Army's Mortuary Office met with Jim Arendt, 64, of Naperville, and older sister Dorothy Stewart of Sun City, Ariz., to explain the circumstances of the death, the recovery of remains and the identification process, which took about five years, Jim Arendt said Wednesday.
