Comments: I just wanted to let the crew members of the USS MINAH know that James B Sizer Passed this Christmas. He was my uncle and inspiration during my hitch in the navy. I know all you fellows kept in touch with each other, I wish the modern naval sailors did the same. Anyways, I found this web site while doing some research and thought this is a good way to inform you. LSCM (Retired)
