Corporal Paul Salvatore Martino was killed in action on July 15, 1918.

The son of Nicholas Martino of Hancox Ave., had been reported missing in action about six weeks before the War Department confirmed his death.

Young Martino was a corporal in Company F, 38th Infantry. He was 19 years old and worked in the Sonneborn Oil Works at the time he enlisted. Before that he attended the local public schools.

Martino, 20, had reached the rank of corporal. He trained at Fort Dix and Syracuse, N.Y., before going to France last March. Another brother, Joseph, also is in France.

Besides his brother in service, he is survived by his father, step-mother, half-sister and two half-brothers.
