I-58: The Japanese Submarine That Sank the USS Indianapolis-- Part 1
The USS Indianapolis was sunk July 30, 1945, by the Japanese submarine I-58. I have been writing quite a bit about the Indianaplois this month, starting with the account of a survivor who died this month and on the 30th, I'll get to see and hear another of the few remaining survivors of the ship speak about it.
The I-59 was one of the few Japanese submarines to survive the war. I wonder if any of its crew are still alive?
Getting To See An Actual Survivor. That Will Be Quite An Experience. --GreGen
