Sept. 20, 1945
- Awarded Posthumously By Officer To Young Northwood’s Wife Camp Crowder, Mo., Sept. 17- For meritorious achievement that cost him his life, the Bronze Star Medal has been posthumously awarded to Infantryman Pvt. Homer A. Norwood of Cassville, Missouri. Presentation of the award was made to his wife, Mrs. Beula M. Norwood, Cassville, Mo., by the Commanding General of Camp Crowder, by direction of the President of the United States. The citation read: For meritorious achievement in connection with military operations against the enemy near Santa Maria, Lulon, Philippine Islands, on 23 and 24 February 1945. Pvt. Norwood was a member of a platoon which was given the mission of capturing a steep hill where the enemy, armed with machine guns, grenades, mortars, and small arms, was dug-in holes from four to six feet deep. Though the enemy outnumbered them and had the advantage of both position and fire power, Pvt. Norwood and his fellow soldiers attacked. For six hours, under the most trying conditions of weather and terrain, they battled a determined and fanatical enemy, fighting forward inch by inch, until every single one of the defenders was killed. During the night and early morning of the following day our men repulsed a counter-attack, killing and wounding many more of the enemy. The heroic action of Pvt. Norwood and his fellow soldiers in completely and halting the foe and capturing a vital position in the face of heavy odds reflects high credit on him, his comrades, and the Armed Forces of the United States.

Prevo, age 32, of Monett, Barry County, Missouri, and Pearl M. Bell, age 23, of Newtonia, Newton County, Missouri. Their witnesses were her father, W. H. Bell, and Mrs. R. L. Williams. On September 12, 1918, Pearl and Allen lived at 2310 Willette, Colorado Springs, when he registered for the WWI draft. He was working as an automobile salesman. His birthday was recorded as May 8, 1886. His physical description was short, medium build, gray eyes, and light brown hair. Very little is known about this time in Pearl's life, for it was a time she preferred not to talk about. It has been reported by family members that Allen was unfaithful to their marriage vows and didn't treat her well. Pearl, who had been brought up with strict Christian morals, had already left him when he filed for a divorce on October 20, 1920. Six months later, June 10, 1921, they were officially divorced. Pearl second married Alfred Edward Marshall. - Joplin Globe, Mar. 4, 1952 - - Funeral services for Allen Prevo, 65 years old, who died Saturday afternoon at the home of a brother, George Prevo, SW of Purdy, will be conducted at 2 p.m. at the Bennett-Wormington Funeral Chapel.
