Soldiers in Uniform - Bub & Kirby Leffel


"Bub" Charles Wesley Leffel & Kirby Leffel

Both, Kirby and Bub, registered for the World War I draft on 12 Sep 1918.  Bub registered in Comanche County, Oklahoma, where he was living at the time.  Kirby registered in Kiowa County.  Since they are in uniforms, they apparently were drafted and served in the army.  We have no record of their service at this time.  Both brothers were living at home with their wives and families in the 1920 census.

I love this picture, especially the female peeking out of the rear opening of the car.  Since both men were married at the time, the female peeking out of the rear window of the car could have been either one of their wives.

Kirby William Leffel and Charles Wesley "Bub" Leffel are the sons of Charles and Caldona Box Leffel.
