Lawrence Schenck

Lawrence Schenck, of Iowa City, was killed by a machine gun bullet, as he stood less than two feet from White. James Stinocher, another Iowa City boy, was hit by a shell a few feet away, and his leg was torn off. He died in the hospital as a result. The former was in White's platoon, and Stinocher was in his squad. Stinocher's brother died in camp in America.
