Just met a nice gentleman who was a Seabee in WWII. He didn't see combat he said be was at New Caledonia for Guadalcanal and saw the ships coming back from battle. He later was at the last port that Indianapolis was at before she sank. It was an interesting talk while we waited for our turn.

Always nice when such a rare encounter happens!

His unit went on the Indianapolis before she sailed back to the US to get any supplies that they didn't need for the trip to put on other ships. So he was among the last shore personnel to be on Indianapolis before she was sunk. I was glad I got to talk to him.
