Where to start with a dark photo?

Suggestions needed for steps to improve this photo.

I've tried various techniques with PSE 3.0 but I can't seem to improve this photo of my grandfather very much. The image shows him in uniform during the Spanish American War; it is printed on a postcard! Which techniques/steps might I use to improve the photo so that I can better reveal his features and uniform? This is one of three problematic photos I'm working on.

Thank you!

Your photo is too small. Can you post a larger image--up to 100 MB.

I think you might mean 100K Ken.

That "blueish" kind of glow is there because the image is silvered. The easest way to correct that is to find someone who can copy your orginal with a digital camera using cross polorized light. Try some of the photo studios in your area and see if you can find one that will do the job.
