    God Bless Him. He must have been the type of guy you would have some beers with and listen to every word.

    Col. Mize was an inspiration to those who served with him. He was in charge of training at JFKSWCS and helped to mold a generation of SF soldiers - I remember him as a mensch, while unassuming, he was a man of consequence. He will be missed.
