The two men in this photo are hard to make out… the photo was so small to begin with. However, it is possible that the one on the (L) may be Ronald Lee CARTER and the one on the (R) Herman Darrell CARTER.
I am assuming this was taken in county near Sunrise Mountain, Las Vegas.

Can anyone identify the area in the photo? Thank you.
