If the Arthur O. Johnson, corporal, from McLean County, North Dakota is the son of Walfred and Carrie Johnson, there is some information about him online.
One piece of information is that he is mentioned in a diary that was written by another member of the North Dakota National Guard, who were fighting the Japanese Army during World War 2 in Guadalcanal.
