Hope this answers some questions for you... (I think the name was De Maso - it seemed like a capital 'M').

If you think education is expensive - try ignorance!
It seems to be a military release of obligations since Luigi was, (according to my records) living in the USA in 1917. I'm guessing he was not yet a citizen here and had to be released from Italy's draft requirements for WWI. Does that make sense to anyone?
Also a big thanks to Valerie and elba for your help in this matter. What a great website!
