Benjamin B. and Thomas Faulconer

Benjamin B. Faulconer and his brother Thomas Faulconer.  Ben was in the 35th Division Co. D, 110th engineers from Mo. and served in France. He returned home on 4-19-1919 on the USS VonSteuben, which was a captured German ship.  The Lt. Com of the company was F.E. Lewis.

Ben's brother, Tom Faulconer was in the Navy and when the photo was taken he was serving at the Brookly Navy Yard and it was taken in 1919 when Ben returned home.

In Ben's possession was a photograph of Glen Rider, standing in the trenches of France. Rider probably was a buddy and/or fellow soldier in the same unit. It is dated 1 Mar 1917.
