FOR AGES 55+ -- THE LOSS OF THE INDIANAPOLIS -- In July 1945, the USS Indianapolis was assigned the top secret mission to deliver an atomic bomb to Tinian Island. This was the bomb later dropped on Hiroshima. Once the mission had been completed, the Indianapolis was torpedoed by a Japanese submarine. Approximately 900 men went into the water that night. Due to a series of blunders, the wreck would remain undiscovered for nearly five days and only 316 would survive
the harrowing experience. What followed was a cover-up, and blame was assigned to the captain who was unfairly court martialed. Learn more as Bob Begin shares the story of one of the worst tragedies in US Naval History. Begin is a history enthusiast and lecturer at local libraries and lifelong learning programs.
