Russell Smith, according to name written on photo. Photo of this First Sergeant in his full dress uniform was taken somewhere in the middle of your time span. If you will allow me to deviate from the full length photo, I will post two more photos of the same soldier. One from his Span-Am period of service, the other pictures him as a lieutenant in the WWI period.

Nice Blues,

 

Three more in dress blues. US 2nd Infantry Regiment, Harrald, Kelly and Miller, at Madison Barracks, NY just prior to shipping out to Fort Shafter, Territory of Hawaii circa 1915. The 2nd was assigned to Oahu from 1911 to 1918

Mike K, thanks for adding to this thread. Apparently, wearing two pistol magazine pouches was a fairly common practice within the AEF. I've seen quite a few photos showing the same.

 

An interesting shot of New York National Guard top sergeant and his field desk dated 1910. Does anyone know anything about the "NY" insignia above the chevron?

Another early image of a Span-Am era soldier wearing a khaki cotton service coat that I can't quite peg as it does not have pointed cuff, which were common to U.S. Army service coats issued during the late 1800's and early 1900's.

 

Can anyone ID what model service coat this man is wearing?

This would have been a 100% full length shot of "Stub, Chris, Johna (sic) & K.P. Lochrey" of Company F, 2nd Supply Train, 2nd Division, had the photo not been trimmed on all four sides.

 

Anyway, its a nice photo of what I'm assuming to be AEF truck drivers. Note the souvenir German belts worn by two WW I Doughboys.
