I'll probably never know where (or why) this yard long was taken but can someone date the photo from the uniforms?

I'd say WW1 or sometime just before. Based on the landscape maybe the southwest U.S. during the border expedition.

That's my guess too - Mexican Border Expedition. I might also venture a guess that the civilians in the picture are either family who came to visit or tourists at whatever site this was at.

Thanks for the replies.  It's hard to tell in the photo but the middle part appears to be a small cove or inlet with a small beach and waves.  Looks like lava in the foreground.  I was thinking Hawaii maybe??

Great picture, Definitely the surface of the moon. Looks like the Punitive Expedition  (that's right isn't it?) time period.

I'm in agreement with Tom63.  Looks like a what he says, that is, small cove with beach and waves, with lava in the foreground.  Hawaii or another pacific island area with volcanic activity.
