His oldest brother, James Vincenzo Capone, left home at 16, joined the military, served in World War I. Changed his name to Richard Hart and he was hired by the U.S. Indian Service to try to keep alcohol off the Indian reservations.
In 1918 Al Capone was involved in a bar fight over a girl with hoodlum Frank Galluccio. Gallucio scarred Capone's face and he picked up his moniker - 'Scarface'.
