Death of USS Indianapolis Survivor Harlan Twible
Permalink Closed

It is with a heavy heart that I pass on the news that USS Indianapolis Survivor Harlan Twible passed away this week on April 8, 2018.    Although he had a long, blessed life of 96 years, it is never easy to say goodbye to a friend.   

Harlan was a young Annapolis trained Ensign aboard the ship, and one of the few officers that survived.  

Here is an interview that he did for the National World War 2 Museum.    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r5U28hFNQ_k

May his family find comfort in their fond memories. and may our hero rest in peace.

Sadly, there are now only 16 living Survivors.
