After careful consideration and with an abundance of concern for our USS Indianapolis (CA 35) survivors, families, and friends, we have made the difficult decision to cancel our 75th Anniversary Reunion, scheduled for July 23-26 in Indianapolis. The COVID-19 coronavirus has impacted us individually and as a nation. Safety of travel and restrictions on gatherings have also influenced our decision.
We fully understand how important it is to commemorate the historic 75th anniversary of the loss of USS Indianapolis (CA 35) and to honor and reflect on Indy’s brave crew. So while we won't be convening in Indianapolis this year, we look forward to bringing special programming to your homes!
For the first time ever, the USS Indianapolis (CA 35) Survivors Organization and the USS Indianapolis (CA 35) Legacy Organization are teaming up with media professionals in order to provide free online access to special guest presentations, Q&A Sessions, live special-edition memorabilia auctions, educational videos, exclusive access to commemorative merchandise in our online store, and more!
The Online Virtual Reunion is set to take place on the anniversary of the sinking, July 30th - August 1st. Please make sure to check back here, and on our social media pages for updates in the next few weeks! And see below for answers to our Frequently Asked Questions.
For those who are already registered to attend the reunion, we will be processing refunds shortly. We ask for your patience as it will take us a while to notify all registrants and to process refunds. To cancel your room reservations, please contact the Hyatt Regency Indianapolis directly.
Again, our priority is to support the well-being of our survivors and their guests. Thank you for your understanding.
