The WW I picture is Edgar Sell (Section R Grave 189) arms crossed

and wearing a “campaign hat” highlighted with a red dot.

Edgar was part of a medical replacements’ unit sent to France. If you look closely the truck, they are standing by is an ambulance (red cross on the side). Edgar was in a medical unit that shipped out from Camp Crane which was located on the Fairgrounds in Allentown Pa. where they trained ambulance drivers. In 1917 a lot of people had never driven let alone had any medical training. This additional military background information was supplied by Wesley Shelton.
