found by accident! With that said what a beautiful tribute. The downtown Indy hike we took exposed us to so much more than we expected.
A well done memorial to one of the great Navy tragedies in US History. The USS Indianapolis delivered the atomic bomb in WWII, was sunk, and the survivors were left in shark infested waters for days. The memorial is thought provoking and not over stated.
This monument has a personal feel that is fitting for the crew that had a major role in bringing World War 2 to an end. Take time to read the inscriptioins, and it is probably a good idea to check out wikipedia first to understand the plight of the ship and her crew.
I didn't know about this history. A deep respect to all veterans when you learn the horrors of war. It was a beautiful and warm day. we sat in silence and honored those who both lived and died.
Interestingly nice but not a major attraction. If you are on the canal then stop and take a look but if not don't go out of your way unless that is you knew someone affected.
This is a wonderful tribute to those who lost their lives helping to end WW2. I like that it's immediately next to the canal and the cultural trail. Sure, it only takes three minutes to visit, but I enjoy it. I especially like that it's shape is somewhat like a ship at sail on the sea.
Looking at the long list of names makes me appreciate their sacrifice. I have met 2 of the survivors and cannot even begin to comprehend what that experience would have been to them. God Bless them all.
