Old Photograph

I found this picture among my grandmother’s photographs that I inherited. There is no information on the back of the picture. No one in my family knows who this person is and I have never seen this picture before.
Does anybody know what kind of uniform this is? I have searched the internet and found nothing.  My family was from Indiana and Kansas, if this is any help.

Hi there,
I believe this is a World War I Army uniform. The A patch on the sleeve indicates that he was in the Third army.

I tried to figure out what the four chevrons on his lower sleeve meant and found this article that might help.
