Navy Determines Definitive Number of USS Indianapolis Survivors


Recommended Posts

More than seven decades after being sunk by a Japanese submarine, the U.S. Navy has a final crew accounting of heavy cruiser USS Indianapolis (CA-35).


Since being sunk on July 30, 1945, in the Philippine Sea, the number of people onboard Indianapolis had been reported as either 1,195 or 1,196, and the survivors had officially been listed as 316 but at times had been reported as 317. https://news.usni.org/2018/03/23/navy-determines-definitive-number-uss-indianapolis-survivors
