Military Postcard from Eli W. McKenney Naming Four Fellow Company Members

This postcard was from Eli W. McKenney to his niece, Mabel Clair McKenney. Though this is from the time during his service in the Philippines, the postcard shows the men standing in snow which indicates they were stateside, thus I’m unsure when or where the photo would have been taken. I have looked up some of the names and been unable to ID anyone.

The sun was so bright none of us could open our eyes so we look like blind mice they are all recruits but me.
