  1. Thanks everyone. This is a very interesting exchange - great history lesson and photos. My (maternal) great-grandfather - Guy Harrison Locke - was a member of the Bradford, PA unit (Co. C) of the 16th Pennsylvania. His cousin joined from TItusville (Co. K). Both deployed to "Porto" Rico and were involved in the Coamo battle. Only man in our family to go off to war and actually be "home by Christmas." Bradford has a nice Spanish-American war memorial - one plaque honoring those who died on the Maine - and one for all who fought in the war.

  3. Gentlemen, I can help you. The uniform clearly belonged to my grandfather, Dr. Endre K. Brunner - a Naval Medical Officer assigned to the Marines. He was an amazing man with an incredible life story. He was born in Debrecen, Hungary in 1900, the son of an opthamologist. He fought in the Austro-Hungarian Army in WWI (Italian Front), escaped from Hungary (Romanian occupation) and came to the U.S. with the aid of an uncle in New York, and finished his medical training at New York University (although, when he discovered that the US had imposed Prohibition, he said he had his doubts...).
