WWI Soldier Buried at Arlington National Cemetery

Arlington, VA. - Eighty-eight years after being killed in action along the not-so-quiet Western Front of World War I, Army Pvt. Francis Lupo of Cincinnati was buried today with military honors at Arlington National Cemetery.

Lupo is the first U.S. servicemember classified as missing in action from World War I to be identified.

Lupo, the son of Sicilian immigrants, was 23 years old when he was killed in July 1918 while participating in the combined French-American attack on the Germans near Soissons, France, in what came to be known as the Second Battle of the Marne. Lupo was buried in a shallow grave alongside another American Soldier. Lupo was a member of Company E, 18th Infantry Regiment, 1st Infantry Division.
