USS INDIANAPOLIS - CA-35
 

WW2IND Amateur radio station






   Her mast stood approximately 130 feet above the water, the 10 battle stars painted on her bow, reminded most of the outstanding
service to our country in time of war. Today the USS Indianapolis is remembered as a memorial located on the scenic north end of the
Indianapolis Indiana downtown canal. This is the place where the survivors from her sinking on July 30, 1945 meet to remember those
tragic days and their fallen shipmates. Survivors attend the annual reunion; ceremony at the CA-35 memorial site supported by family,
friends and military personnel; saying thanks for the freedom the old ship and crew provided through their service.
