He has corporal stripes just visible on his left sleeve. The cap looks like an Model 1917 enlisted mans visor cap. Looks like it was taken at the same time as the first photo, he just switched hats it looks like. If you look at the buttons and belt buckle placement, it looks like the image was "flipped" in the second photo. I would suggest sending away for any military records he may have-
