Uniform Identification from around 1930-1945

Uniform Identification from around 1930-1945

If anyone could tell me what branch of the military this person was in I would greatly appreciate it. And if you know where I could find military records for him. His name is Maurice Wood, and he was born about 1912-1915. He lived in Louisiana all his life I believe. He spoke French, and was a translator for the U.S. Military, possibly during World War II as this picture looks like it was taken when he was in his 20s, possibly early 30s. Thank you!

It's a standard US Army enlisted man's uniform. If the picture were a little clearer, the collar discs would show what branch he was in. Trying to identify the ribbon, he's only wearing one and it looks like a good conduct medal. He doesn't have any of the typical WW 2 campaign or service medal ribbons, so it's likely this photo was either pre WW-2 or late 40's.
