Looking for relatives of these sailors lost on the SIGSBEE:

There are twenty-four (24) sailors honored on both this web site and John Mastin's web site. Of these, seven (7) sailors do not have a photo posted. It is our goal to obtain and post a photo of each Sigsbee Hero who made the ultimate sacrifice. During our research my good friends John Mastin, John Chiquoine and I have been unable to locate any family members of these seven sailors. If anyone visiting this site can help, please contact us using our "Guest Book" or e-mail me at  Billykr@aol.com
