|'Casualty' does not always mean 'Killed in Action'|
It can also mean 'Wounded' - I knew at least one of
the men in the list when I was growing up; he was

I was interested to see that one of my great uncles is listed...William Samuel Fitzgerald. I had known he was in WWI, but nothing about his experiences. He definitely didn't die in the war, but must have been WIA.

The Selective Service Act was only passed
the month before in May 1917...
