Lawrence Meeker First Trojan Officially Reported Wounded in Battle in France.

Official news of the first Troy casualty in the great world war came Monday in a dispatch from Washington to Mr. and Mrs. William Meeker that their son, Private Lawrence Shirley Meeker, had been seriously wounded in action on July 23d. The department said it had no further official information.

It is therefore not known whether Meeker is recovering from his wounds or has given his life to the cause of right and justice to which his heart so patriotically responded.

Lawrence Meeker is 20 years old. He was a trusted employe of E. VanDyne’s Sons when on last February 5th he went to Elmira and enlisted. He was sent to Fort Slocum and assigned to Co. B. of the Fourth Regular Infantry with which it is assumed he was serving when wounded. He sailed for France the last of April. (Aug 8, 1918 issue)
