Is it possible that some of your information about Warren is incorrect? If he were born in 1903, he would have been only 14 during the 1917 WWI draft. Further, I could not find a Social Security Death Index (SSDI) reference for him with that date of birth.

However ... when I expanded his possible birthdate I found a record of what appears to be his draft registration card of June 1917. It reads (in part):
Smith, Walter W.
Born: 30 March 1893 (not 1903)
Place of Birth: Cockrell, Texas (not Arkansas)
Card: 1654#929

Using that, I went back to the SSDI and found the following:
Walter Smith 30 Mar 1893 to May 1970
SSN: 444-38-0516 (Last residence in Idabel, McCurtain, OK)

I then explored the data files I have available for Hollycreek Cemetery and found the following entry:

Walter Warren Smith 30 Mar 1893 - 6 May 1970 WWI

Still kinda concerned about the Texas rather than Arkansas place of birth, I checked both the 1920 and 1930 census files and found that in each ... he listed Texas as his place of birth.

Anyway ... I think the Walter Warren Smith that I describe above is one and the same Walter Warren Smith you are gathering data about.

Oh, just for good measure ... here are the Smith burials at Hollycreek Cemetery (McCurtain County, OK):
