In behalf of my 886 shipmates who lost their lives, Rear Adm. Charles B. McVay and I (a survivor of the USS Indianapolis) request you contact your U.S. representatives in Congress in support of pending legis-lation HR3710.

We survivors are unanimous in our support of our (then Capt.) McVay and hope to live long enough to see his name cleared of the military court-martial and fiasco that occured 52 years ago. We also request that Congress bestow recognition on the ship and those who gave their lives in the final crew of the USS Indianapolis.George A. Whiting
