Comments While going over the list of departed, I noticed that Lt. John Nicely is not listed. We lost Lt. Nicely during Med operations in 79. I think about him on every Memorial Day in a private moment. I have searched all over the net for info on him but without succes. The 79 roster lists him as Nicely, C.C., however the 79 cruise book lists him as John. Anyone that can provide me any leads such as full name, hometown, spouse's name, pro baseball team he played on etc, would be appreciated. I would like to get further info to have him listed on our departed roster. Thank you for your service, dedication, and sacrifice to our nation, John!
