Last week, my husband and I took our 7 year old son to Indianapolis for a concert and we visited the Indiana War Memorial while we were there.  We were all very impressed by the displays and history and it seems to rival almost anything I have seen in Washington DC. We visited the new USS Indianapolis section also.  It was very small, just one room. I was told that it doesnt officially open until August sometime and they are still adding more memorabilia.  I hope so.  What was currently there was very moving though. The most memorable part of the visit was meeting the family of a crewman who died that fateful night.  We met a few members of Elmer O. Michael's family.  According to his son and daughter, their father was an assistant to the Chaplain.  It was very humbling and memorable and I am grateful to have met them.
