Honoring our fallen heroes with stories of those who paid the ultimate price for our freedom | Passport Picks
In recognition of Memorial Day on May 29th, this week’s Passport Picks shed a light on those who fought for our independence and freedom.
The first is USS Indianapolis: The Final Chapter
In July 1945, the USS Indianapolis has just delivered “Little Boy” – the atomic bomb destined for Hiroshima – when she is sunk by a Japanese sub. 300 sailors go down with her, and the 900 survivors drift for four and a half days, battling the sun, thirst, sharks, and their own fear. Ultimately, only 316 of them are pulled from the sea alive.
The War is the story of the Second World War through the personal accounts of a handful of men and women from four American towns. The war touched the lives of every family on every street in every town in America and demonstrated that in extraordinary times, there are no ordinary lives.
