W.A. Farmer, U.S. Army Recruiting Service, c. 1914.

The cap badge is of the Recruiting Service, but the back of this postcard from W. A. Farmer to his mother is annotated Del Rio, Texas, 14 Cav. M.G.P. [Machine Gun Platoon]. Perhaps the picture was taken when Farmer was a new recruit, but then sent later, after he was assigned to a regiment.
