    According to the Military, graduates’ formal photos, both individual and group, were taken by private local commercial photographers and offered for sale at the time taken. Unfortunately those items rarely became part of official military records nor were they retained by the commercial photographers responsible for shooting the photos.

    We have many candid photos of U.S. Military personnel but in most of them, there is no identification of the people shown. We have a name index, filed by the last name where we did a search for Barney Kagel, however there were no images located.

    If you haven’t done so already, you may wish to try requesting their Military Service Record. You can find more information on where to direct your request at https://www.archives.gov/veterans/military-service-records/pre-ww-1-records

    Although we were unable to find any photographs of Pvt. Kagel, the entirety of the World War I portion of our series of Signal Corps photographs--111-SC: Photographs of American Military Activities, ca. 1918–ca. 1981--have been digitized. At this time we are in the process of QCing and uploading the photographs to the online catalog. As such, not all of the images have been made available online. You can search what is currently online by clicking the hyperlink above and selecting the "Search within this Series" button. Then, you may enter keywords into the search bar. 

    For example, you may view images of the 112th Infantry Regiment of the 28th Infantry Division taken during and immediately after the war by following the hyperlinks below:
