USS INDIANAPOLIS - CA-35 (memorial)
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
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.
