[l-r, standing] Knapp, Payet, Hernandez was written on this photo.  No entry was made for those kneeling.
   It is known that John Payet [center] was in B Company.  There was also a Sgt William F. Knapp in that same company so it is presumed that he is the man on the left.  By the same token, the man standing on the right should be Pfc Frank R. Hernandez, also of B Company.
