postheadericon Homesick 1916

My Great-Aunt and my Grandmother traveled to New York State in 1916. Some of the photos seem to have been taken at an army base. I suspect they went to visit my uncle, who was in WWI and might have been stationed there before deployment to Europe. Story has it that my grandmother tried to block my Uncle from lying about his age by a few months to sign up, but that my Grandfather won out and their son joined the Army. He was in Europe for a long time, at least over 2 Christmases, in Holland, France, Germany.
