The back of this picture simply says "Frank Kearnay". Anyway someone can help me figure out what era this young man was serving? It looks like the Great War, but could be older, as I don't know enough to say Span-Am to Great War on this generic doughboy look! -grin-

 

Thanks for any help!

Elizabeth

I think it is later than WW1. I base that on the insignia fixed on the front of his hat. it looks like either a regimental crest or maybe a bright collar disk which would make it a little later.

Agreed....looks like early 1930s or so.
