  1. Yes, I saw that and I posted about his passing. Jim was a super nice guy. I have been to three of the survivor reunions and got to know him a little bit. The USS Indianapolis has a facebook page and they do keep up on what's going on with the remaining survivors. Sad to see these men leaving us at the clip they have been. I am in the process of reading 317 again and am almost done. Jim didn't have a lot to say about the sinking in the Survivor organization book, but he would talk about it at the reunions. I only wish I would have started [didn't know public could go] going to reunions years a
  2. Yes, it does say that. Mr Jarvis wore that to the reunions. He had it on a lot of times at the book signings. He was a great guy and I am glad I got to meet him- I have been to three of their reunions.
  3. That's a really good book. I am presently reading Bataan Uncensored by Col E B Miller. So sad what happened to our men and the Filipino allies

  11. Got this a few years back, figured it had a World War I relationship to some kind of game- found it going thru some stuff [covid boredom] and researched it finally. Anybody else ever hear of this game? The booklet is complete all 16 pages intact. There's even a video out there of the men playing the game.
