    Bi-LOG  
    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 CA-35 is remembered as a memorial located on the scenic north end of the Indianapolis Indiana
    downtown Canal and in the Indiana War Memorial facility.(IWM)
    This is where the survivors from her sinking on July 30, 1945 meet to remember those tragic days and their fallen shipmates.
    Survivors attend the 5 day long Annual reunion; which ends with a ceremony at the CA-35 memorial sites joined by family,
    friends and military personnel; saying thanks for the freedom the old ship and crew provided through their service.
