Photo of Leonard Starnes during WWI . click on photo for larger view . . From Janie Elms Matthews: Here are two photographs of my handsome grandfather, Leonard Starnes [1886-1967] during WWI. I can’t find his military records on-line except for his draft registration card, but my uncle said he was sent to guard the border with Mexico. The first picture shows the men working around camp, and he is washing dishes between the man with the jug and the one with a cigarette.
The 2nd photo shows 3 men (one is in a foxhole). The “X” is over Leonard’s head.
