70 years ago today..
Those poor bastards in the Indianapolis began their ordeal.
Forgotten by their command, they floated for 4 days in the Pacific after being torpedoed on their way from Guam to the Phillipines...No one was looking for 'em....A LOT of people failed the men of the Indianapolis that day and the next...
No one was even looking for them. Found by accident .
880 went into the water..
217 came out.
Kinda like this story:
