It is with great sadness that I report that another survivor of the U.S.S. Indianapolis passed away on April 12, 2018. With only 16 remaining survivors, time is of the essence to honor the remaining crew members with a Congressional Gold Medal. I strongly
urge my colleagues to cosponsor H.R. 4107, the U.S.S. Indianapolis Congressional Gold Medal Act, so we can express our highest level of appreciation for their bravery and distinguished achievements during World War II.
