Hello Everyone, just wanted to say I accidently stumbled onto this convention while visiting Indianapolis from Providence, RI. I was immediately captivated by the knowledge, wisdom, expertise and humbleness of this survivor and veteran of the U.S.S. Indianapolis. Previous to this chance encounter, I never knew this ship ever existed!
I can't find any information on a 2011 reunion and am desperately trying to go if there is one.....do you by chance know where to steer me?

Then on Saturday August 20 @ 2pm, they will have a wreath laying ceremony at the Texas Panhandle War Memorial. They will be staying at the Ambassador Hotel in Amarillo.
