World War I Casualty Lists - May 13, 1918


Gen. Pershing Reports 38 Missing in Action, The Largest Total Listed on Any Single Day

Washington, May 13. - The War Department today made public a list of 96 casualties in the American army abroad, bringing the total from the beginning to 5,489. The list contains the names of 38 missing in action, making the net total missing in action 124 men. This is the largest number of missing given out in one day, and is interpreted as meaning that the department is feeding into the daily casualty list the names of men whom the Germans profess to have taken prisoner in the recent battle at Seicheprey.

The department also announced today that Captain R. M. Deming of Balston Spa, N.Y., previously reported as missing, was now reported as a prisoner. The names of three other commissioned officers appear in the list. Lieutenant Guy Raymond Forbes of Minneapolis died of disease. Lieutenant Walter T. O'Donohue of Hartford was wounded slightly. Lieutenant Joseph P. Burke of Pittston, Penn., is missing in action.
