The uniform is WWI U.S.. I think I may have the medal he is wearing?? which I believe is a service medal awarded by the City of San Francisco for WWI service. Let me look at the one I have before writing that in stone, I have the medal but can't remember what it was for. I can't help you with the sword and sash as they don't look US to me.
The sword and sash did throw me, but this information is very help.

My collection re-organized
Look at the third picture down, top left, 5th medal from the left with the blue ribbon. I think this is the one he is wearing. It is a American Legion medal WWI. I can't remember much about it as i would have to dig it out to see what it says.
Happiness is a belt fed weapon
The uniform is a model 1918.
It has a 6 months service stripe but it is impossible to tell if it overseas or home service. Without a shoulder patch I suspect it is stateside service. The sword is a lodge sword but I cant identify it.
Hope this helps.
Very helpful, thanks Steve.
So a 'lodge sword' means the Masonic Lodge I take it?
