Any chance of identifying the soldier here?

Article about: I'd love to know who this soldier was, just for personal reasons. I can provide more photos if need be.

    OK. First is that who's ever this was belonged to the 30th (Old Hickory) division.

    30th Infantry Division (United States) - Wikipedia

    The number is his service number 1326016 (or is it an 8)

    The issue is that most WW1 service records were destroyed in a fire decades ago. So you probably won't find any information on the NARA database.

    NARA does however give you a link to Ancestry.com and FamilySearch.org. I couldn't figure out how to search for serial number.

    I did type the serial number into Ancestry and got 2 hits. That said, it wasn't actually a serial number search. I just typed the number in

    1326016 - U.S., World War I Draft Registration Cards, 1917-1918 - Ancestry.com

    Not being a member of Ancestry, I then looked up these two people on FamilySearch.org (it's free but you have to sign up). Here are their draft cards. Unfortunately I have no idea if they are linked to this serial number...

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

    It's 8, but thanks for the research. Would be interesting to find ancestry detail on him.

    In that case I found 2 more

    John Thomas Woods (Erie County NY)

    James Edward Bozeman (Almeda County California)

    (same county and state as the first two...logical. they were probably 2 back in the draft line....LoL)

    Still I don't think it is pulling up the serial numbers. Maybe someone else can help with the search.
