I believe the soldier who's name you can't make out belonged to Company G, 6th Regiment, Texas Cavalry.  I still can't make out the name yet though.

After thinking about it a second, it could be Company G, 6th Regiment, Tennessee Infantry or Cavalry.

The 6th Regiment, Texas Infantry, was under the 36th ID, 2nd Infantry Brigade, 1917-18. Brig Gen John A. Hulen Commanding. Mustered in Aug 5, 1917. There were 75 1st Lt's. They saw heavy service. Looks like H M Candler. I have not found a roster.

WWIIDADS,

THANK YOU FOR ALL OF THE INFORMATION.  I HAVE INCLUDED TWO MORE PHOTOS OF THE AF-AM SOLDIER.  THE CLOSE UP IS ABOUT THE BEST I CAN GET WITH MY I PHONE.

THANKS AGAIN FOR YOUR HELP.

With regards to the AF-AM soldier, it looks to me like 24th Infantry, Company M.

Looks like the Af-Am gentleman was 24th Infantry Regiment, Spanish American and/or Philippine American Wars.

Thanks ww2dads,

Does the fancy cording across the chest represent any service, rank, etc. ?????  What would have been this soldiers job or specialty ???

That cord is just a dress embellishment of the time period and will be in the branch color, in this case Light Blue for Infantry.

 

Here's a view of them in real color.
