no USS Indy Radio room PIX available.
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. About 19 survivors attend the June 5th 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.
