Papers relating to Glen J. Sizemore, including cigarette ration cards, a photograph, a Navy pay receipt, a special liberty request, and letters from Roy Lee Sizemore to Glen J. Sizemore, US Naval Air Station, Dallas, TX. US Navy. The personal letters from Roy Lee Sizemore, aboard the USS Rigel, to Glen J. Sizemore, US Naval Air Station, Dallas, TX, discuss Roy's recommendation that Glen pursue a job with a sheet-metal company based in Honolulu. Roy is glad to be aboard the Rigel because it is “the least regulation ship in the Navy." The Rigel is a repair ship and seldom goes to sea. "It gets rather monotonous, just putting in a day.” He also writes, “It is always bad to try and mix civilian workmen and enlisted men and expect to get any work done.”
