USS Indianapolis, The Legacy

USS Indianapolis, The Legacy will be shown following a social hour. The film is the story of the sinking of the cruiser that carried the atomic bomb to Tinian prior to it being dropped on Japan. 880 men went into the water within 12 minutes of a torpedo strike. They would be all but forgotten for four days by all but the sharks. 317 survived to tell this heroic and horrific story.
