    The carrier in the photo is either the Lexington or Saratoga, both of whicn were not commissioned until 1927. I don't see Nimitz in the photos.

ID:	890742 Im by no means an expert just looking for opinions. I had previously looked around on the internet i came upon this photo that bears what I thought to be a fairly good resemblance the officer on the right of my photo. Plus the sub photos that were with the group led me to believe a stronger likelihood that I was on to something but maybe I was wrong. I believe Nimitz was an advocate of submarines and there potential in battle. Am i reaching ?
