Last Known Activity

During the Okinawa Campaign, the USS Isherwood (DD-520) came under attack from Japanese planes. On April 22, 1945, the bombs caused several fires aboard the ship and F1c Arcangeletti helped his shipmates fight those fires. He was killed in action that day, although the exact cause of his death is not known. According to ship's muster rolls, F1c Arcangeletti was first buried in Retto. In 1949, his remains were returned the the United States for burial by his family. He was posthumously awarded the Bronze Star for his actions on the day of his death.
