I don't think this is the same guy....1st off the "younger" version is supposed to be France 1940 but he has a "Winter in Russia 1941/42 ribbon on his ribbon bar plus he's an NCO. The "older" view he's an "enlisted man"...(no NCO tresse). There is a resembleance, maybe they are brothers?
Don't mean to "nit pick"....
