Rest in Peace ~ James Wesley Mize

It's been a very long time since we last spoke to each other. It was in May, 1964 and you had just shipped out from Ft. Lewis, WA and my ship, USS Oriskany CVA 34 was in dry dock at Puget Sound. You had invited me to spend my week-ends off with your family in Tacoma, WA. I have searched since 1966 for any surviving member of your family and fellow warriors in order to try and learn more about your time in country. I have researched for any documents I could find to know the circumstances that took you off the battle field. I've heard and read of your bravery and how you gave your life in an attempt to save a fellow soldier, Richard Barnes. I miss you and I want you to know that I will keep your memory alive as long as I am on this earth. We were buddies in high school and the bond created then will last for all eternity. Rest easy my friend.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear SP4 James Wesley Mize Jr, sir

As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.

May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.

With respect, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir

Curt Carter
