No man, that was totally legit. I actually had a cousin in the Coast Guard take that picture. Unfortunately the position was classified, so they had to mask some identities.

If you look real close you can see the thermal scarring left by the CIS nuke.
right... I opened the door for that

Should've clarified, USS Hawkbill was SSN 666, and no such submarine named USS Des Moines. I've seen plenty of improperly captioned photos (46's labled as 53's, etc). I thought you may have cut and pasted the caption from something.
