Photos of every USS Indianapolis crew


I am still searching for photographs of any of the men while they were serving on the USS Indianapolis.  I have several hundred at the moment. Please drop me a line.  I hope to have all the men's pictures for the reunion in August.

I also wanted to let everyone know I just heard that a great humble man has passed away. Bill Van Wilpe, the decorated rescuer from the USS Bassett.  We should all honor him.

I have an original poster from the 40s that commemorates the service of my great great uncle who served on the USS Indy. The center of the poster has a black and white photograph of him in uniform. Contact me and I will send you a file of it.

I would really enjoy seeing the picture of your great uncle. What was his name?

Did you know the reunion for the Indy crew is coming up this weekend in Indianapolis?  There are still 38 men left from the survivors.

Good afternoon, Thank You for adding me.  I am trying to find a picture or any information of Seaman 2C Charles Walter Roof, who perished on the USS Indianapolis. He was an only child, from Detroit Michigan. I have found very limited information on Ancestry.com. He is my 2nd cousin. Thank You.

God Bless to Edwin Smith and his family.

Have you ever met anyone that knew Edwin on ship? May I ask how you were related to him?

I plan on seeing a few of the survivors in a few weeks. I will share his name to see if any of them knew Mr. Smith.

He is my great uncle. Although I never knew him my grandfather (his brother) made sure to keep him memory very alive. From what I know he worked in the boiler room. My grandfather said when he was very young a friend did come to see his family. He said he wasn't sure, but he thought Edwin went down with the ship. I would love for you speak with anyone about him. Even if nothing comes of it, it's nice to know he's being spoke of.

Thank you,

Carolin
