What a handsome young man, it's a pity his life was cut short so soon.
Judy the first link to Anonymous O'Reilly which is above the picture, says the page does not exist. You never finished completing the information out. The one below works fine :o)

Thank you so much, Jerry!  I've been working on one tonight that I hope you'll read and enjoy...it will be awhile, tho' as I wasted hours because his first name was wrong in several places...Morton--and when I found out he really was named 'Molton,' I began to find information I need.  I'll work on it some tomorrow, but there's something special I'm going to do, so I doubt if I get finished.  Thanks again!  Judy

War is a scourge, and it’s always terrible that so many young folks (and old) died (and still do) because others couldn’t get their acts together. It is a wonderful thing that you have this photo to honor the service of one so long ago. Thanks for sharing this, Judy.
