 Additional Information
Last Known Activity
Technician 5th Grade Daniel Arnold enlisted in Montgomery, Alabama on 5 October 1940.

He was killed while being held as a Prisoner of War on June 17, 1942, by Japanese Forces at Camp O'Donnell, Luzon, Philippines.  (Also listed as dying on 21 May 1942).

He served with the 48th Material Squadron, 27 Bomb Group (Light) which arrived in the PI on 20 November 1941. This unit was to support the A-24DE (Dauntless) aircraft.

The unit was moved to Bataan and became the 2nd Battalion (27th Bombardment Group) Provisional Infantry Regiment (Air Corp) where the unit fought as an infantry unit until the surrender.  They were forced on the death march following the Battle of Bataan.

Note: T5G Arnold is listed in other sources as a Corporal and his birth year is also given as 1921, which seems more likely.  He is also listed as being interred in Collins Chapel Cemetery, Malone, Jackson County, Florida
