Young, set and ready for WW I, I guess... I do not know if he came back from the war but I am searching to find out what happened to him and what his relation, as "Uncle" he  was to my Smith-Cramberg family.  There were plenty of Cramberg, Kramberg and Kramburg families in Illinois, all related.  Names changed to keep the mail straight (Papaw said).  If I could just get him connected, I will be happy

Wonderful photo. I’m amazed he’s smiling in uniform. Maybe he was ordered to! smiley Looks like the photographer has two backdrops going there. Thanks for sharing the pic with us, SK.

SK, on Roy’s profile you have him born in 1989. Might want to check that!
