A search at and found a few records:

It looks like Benjamin LAKRITZ, born Sep. 188? (year changes slightly on various records, as does the date in September) was in the U.S. Army in WW1, and his father is listed as Solomon LAKRITZ.

His birthplace is given as Warsaw.  However, on his naturalization papers his birthplace looks like Chrusnitz (sp??)

This is a transcription of Benjamin's 1923 NYC marriage record, which lists his father & mother's names:
