"We waited five days in shark-infested waters to be rescued. We have waited over fifty years to get our Captain McVay's good name cleared."

From statement submitted at September 1999 Senate hearing by Edward J. Brown, USS Indianapolis survivor

About This Site

This site was built in part by Netwide Development, an Internet development firm located in Salt Lake City, Utah that has since been acquired. Most who worked at netwide are too young to have lived through and been directly affected by war. They all have had the opportunity to learn about patriotism and strength through the many great men who went to war for their country. Their respect and love inspired this site and their wish is to share this experience with the rest of the world. Two of the former managing partners are grandchildren of survivor Woody James.

"I grew up saying the pledge of allegiance in school but not really feeling patriotic. I became patriotic after I heard my grandfather's story when I was already an adult. And, after he talked to me about what the flag meant to him. He suffered not only for me but for all of us in the United States, and for that, we should be thankful. I thank god often that my grandfather lived to raise my mother and to be a part of my life. This great man has taught me strength and has filled my life with love. I am so glad he is a survivor".

Jennifer Taylor - Woody James' Granddaughter

"I truly believe that my grandfathers generation was the greatest generation. These men gave so much and have not asked for much in return. Without my grandfathers guidance there are many things I would not know. My grandfather is truly one of my best friends. Through him I have gained a great respect for the men that gave there lives for the freedom of others."

Christopher Allen - Woody James' Grandson

It is the strong belief at Netwide Development that these men deserve justice for their Captain and to be honored for there suffering and bravery. Not only those who survived but those who died. Some people say that too much time has passed, and to that we answer:

"A wrong is still a wrong no matter how much time has passed."
