RIP Jim Jarvis- fair winds and following seas. It' was a pleasure to have met you at reunions. May God comfort your family and loved ones in this time of loss. Truly a hero.

Does his shirt read, “USS Indianapolis Swim Team”?  


You have to love that sense of humor.  


Rest in peace Sailor.




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.
