I would like help determining the type of medal and uniform worn by the man 2nd from the left in the attached photograph.
I believe he was born in 1870's or 1880's. The photograph was probably taken between 1900 and 1912. The older gentleman and lady were both born in 1845 if that provides a clue as to when the photo was taken. The woman named Rose died in 1912. The family immigrated to the US from Norway in 1877 and lived in the Newman Grove, Nebraska area.
