A Young World War I Sailor: Pete Foley?

Recently, I found these old photos of a handsome, young sailor in family photos kept by my grandmother and her sisters, Mary and Teresa. There was no name on the back but many of the other photos were labeled with names. I learned that my grandmother’s sister Mary was married to Pete Foley. There are photos of Pete in later years. He has such distinct facial features, I believe this young sailor in a World War I navy uniform must be him. What do you think?

These are photos of Pete at an older age for comparison.

Next time I’m in Lubec, I must look at the Lubec Veterans Honor Roll Memorial to see if Pete Foley’s name is there!
