My great Uncle Tom McDonnell served in the 362nd machine gun company of the Powder River Division (91st Infantry). He was wounded in the battle of Muese-Argonne, fought from Sep 26th to Oct 12th 1918 and discharged in 1919 from Fort Russell, Cheyenne Wyoming. The 362nd sustained 90 percent casualties in this battle.
