Looks like Joseph's brother Walter (first name Wladyslaw in 1910 census)also was in WWI according to 1930 census that asks the question.

I Googled "Joseph Kalameja" with quotes and found a book on an electronic library, here is the link:
http://www.ebooksread.com/authors-eng/charles-a-charles-augustus-briggs/history-of-three-hundred-and-twenty-eighth-regiment-of-infantry--eighty-second--nsl/page-10-history-of-three-hundred-and-twenty-eighth-regiment-of-infantry--eighty-second--nsl.shtml
"History of Three Hundred and Twenty-Eighth Infantry
Joseph L. Kalameja Buffalo, NY"

Scroll down towards bottom of page or use the "find on this page" feature and type in last name.

This website will help you research his unit and maybe find a picture of his uniform patch.

Or also use Google books to find unit information.

The NARA has service records if his in in th 20% that survived the 1973 fire.

FYI Hattie was Joseph's wife's name, Constance was his mother's.
