USS Indianapolis- House Resolution

A Japanese submarine torpedoed the Indianapolis on July 30, 1945. Of the 1,196 crewmen on board, about 300 went down with the ship. Another 520 died as they floated among the wreckage, many of them attacked by sharks. Only 317 of the original crew survived, including 3 Iowans.

On Monday, about seventy-five people from across the state traveled to the Iowa House of Representatives to hear the reading of House Resolution 108 to honor Iowans who were aboard the ship. The group included children, grandchildren, widows and close friends.
