I was out at lunch today and noticed a gentleman wearing a USS Indianapolis hat and shirt.
After finishing my meal, I went to thank him for his service. He recounted his service on the USS Indianapolis and gave me an autographed card with a short history on the ship.
He is the last USMC survivor of the USS Indianapolis and to my surprise lives in my local area.
Anyone not familiar with the USS Indianapolis story, I recommend that you take a few minutes to read the story.
The ship itself was recently in the news as it's final resting place was discovered and photographed.
