Looking at this picture (a bit fuzzy) it appears that this is a member of the Army Junior ROTC corps. Without a color picture it would be hard to
identify, but here's what clued me in. U.S. Army wear their name tags on the flap of their right top pocket, with the top of the name tag even with
the top seam of the pocket. The US Air Force and US Navy have their name tags above the pocket with the bottom of the name tag grounded to the top
seam of the pocket.
The award/decoration ribbons are on the left side, with the bottom of the bottom row of ribbons grounded to the top seam of the left top pocket.
Navy, Air force, and Marines are similar.
If you look at the picture, the fuzz on the right side top pocket is lower than the fuzz over the left top pocket.
The presences of BLACK shoulder boards with some sort of rank designation is another clue. This is common among ROTC/JROTC corps officers.
So, the person standing in that photo is a high school student who is a member of the Army JROTC corps.
