Harlan & Fortner, front

I have this picture from my mom's candy tin after she passed away. It has 2 men in uniform from WW1. On the back it says Harlow or Harlan An. Fortner. I am guessing one man is Harlan and one is named Fortner. Don't know who they are. The tall man kind of favors me some.

The Mystery

I have noticed that old writing from the early 1900's has the n's really being w's. I noticed this on my mom's birth record when my grandmother signed her name. The o's and a's are hard to tell the difference on too.
