Last Known Activity
PFC Arendt was assigned to the 519th Military Police Battalion in Japan prior to the outbreak of the Karean War. In Korea, he was serving with 3rd Battalion, 8th Cavalry Regiment, 1st Cavalry Division occupying a defensive position near the town of Unsan in the bend of the Kuryong River known as the Camels Head. His unit was involved in heavy fighting which devolved into hand-to-hand combat around their command post.

He had been captured on 2 November 1950 and was believed to have been shot to death by his captors on 16 November 1950 in a farm field.

Almost 400 men of the 8th Cavalry Regiment were reported missing in action or killed in action from the battle at Unsan. In late November 1950, a U.S. soldier captured during the battle of Unsan reported during his debriefing that he and nine other American soldiers were moved to a house near the battlefield. The POWs were taken to an adjacent field and shot.

In 2004, PFC Arendt's  remains were recovered in North Korea. After intensive analysis of the remains, he was identified in July, 2009.

He was laid to rest in Saint Michael The Archangel Catholic Cemetery, Palatine, Cook County, Illinois, on 29 March  2010.
