1- Shine. U.S.S. Indianapolis: Worst Shark Attack in History

May 11, 2017

Have you visited the World War 2 War Memorial in Washington, D.C.? Or have you seen the recent Nicolas Cage movie, U.S.S. Indianapolis: Men of Courage? On this episode, we chat with the Colonel (yes, a real one) discussing one of the largest, tragic naval tragedies to date. After delivering components of the atomic bomb, the U.S.S. Indianapolis was hit by enemy torpedoes. After sinking, approximately 900 of the 1196 men were stranded in the water for three and half days- open to the elements and wildlife (aka sharks). This episode speaks of the bravery and the hardship these men endured- and ultimately the man who took his life out of guilt. Wine and Shine-outs: Please ensure to keep #JusticeforJody in your minds and hearts. The family of Jody LeCornu is looking for answers to their unsolved sister's murder. For More Information on this episode: In Harm's Way by Doug Stanton (book) or U.S.S. Indianapolis: The Legacy (documentary).
