Honoring the USS Indianapolis

Bill Benner has a post today about something I’m putting on my calendar for July. 

Beginning on July 1, Indianapolis’s World War Memorial will become home to the USS Indianapolis Museum.

Here’s the key part from Bill’s article:

Most poignantly, and appropriately, there are 85 survivors still alive, and they will gather in Indianapolis from July 5-9 for their bi-annual reunion, just days after the museum’s opening.

    I’ve seen a lot of movies, some good, some ok, some sleepers. But why not make a movie about the USS Indianapolis? I always thought the ship had loads of history and other interesting stories to make a fantastic, educational, exciting movie. I figured it could start out with a clip from Jaws I, when they are below deck talking about their scars and then when the Captain ends the story about the Indy, have the scene shift backwards to the time when the kamikazee crashed into the deck. It is loaded with potential. Politics, blood and guts.

"Don't go around saying the world owes you a living. The world owes you nothing. It was here first." Mark Twain

Quote 2

From Marine Corps Chaplain Father Dennis O'Brien: "It is the soldier, not the poet who has given us freedom of speech. It is the soldier, not the reporter who has given us freedom of the press. It is the soldier, not the campus organizer who has given us the freedom to demonstrate. And it is the soldier who salutes the flag, who serves beneath the flag, and whose coffin is draped by the flag, who gives the protester the right to burn the flag." found on: www.robreider.com
