1891-1925

Born two miles west April 1891, Arrowood was one of the first American soldiers to be decorated for bravery in World War I. The French government, on Nov. 14, 1917, awarded him the Croix de Guerre for the rescue of several men under his command from a raid of German soldiers on the trenches. Newspapers all over the world carried accounts of his bravery. He died in Denver, Colorado.
