Looking Back to 1916: Visiting His Mother

From March 30, 2016, MidWeek "Looking Back."

1916, 100 Years Ago.

"Roy McAllister, formerly of Kirkland, is visiting his mother, Mrs. A.L. Palmer, in Belvidere, after a service of five years in the United States navy, the last four of which was spent in China and adjacent waters."

I have to wonder if he was called back into service when the United States entered World War I?
