I have no idea who he is but his cap device as well as the color of his uniform indicates that he is a Naval not an Airforce member. At this time the Army Air Corps was a part of the army and had the same uniforms as the army.

French?? The eagle ceased to be a national symbol in France since 1870 with the fall of Napoléon III...
the only French is de Gaulle

crossed anchors, shield under an eagle, seems to be some US Navy Admiral
