SOLD OUT: USS Indianapolis Lunch and Open House
July 19 @ 11:30 am - 3:00 pm
Unfortunately, this event is SOLD OUT. Thank you for your interest and we look forward to seeing you at future events!
The USS Indianapolis CA-35 and her crew played a pivotal role in the Allied victory over Japan before she was sunk on July 30, 1945. This loss is considered one of the worst naval disasters in U.S. history and as Captain William Toti, U.S. Navy (Ret), so aptly stated, “No ship or crew in history has done more or sacrificed more than the cruiser Indianapolis.”
You are invited to join the Indiana War Memorials Foundation, Indiana War Memorials Commission, and the 74th USS Indianapolis CA-35 Reunion families for a very special event on the afternoon of July 19th. This informal event will include a luncheon, excerpts from the play “Failure to Zig Zag: The Story of the U.S.S. Indianapolis,” special tours of Indiana War Memorial USS Indianapolis exhibits, and a presentation of the PBS documentary U.S.S. Indianapolis: The Final Chapter.
