    OK. a question has been asked over the years. why did she sink so fast???? in only 11 mins. the massive damage for sure. but. I found out a long time ago the OIC in the engine room was cut off from the bridge. his decesion was to follow the last propulsion command received and keep the ship moving. I think this contributed to sinking the ship faster. he was not aware the Indy had no bow. and now, moving forward she was scooping the Pacific Ocean inside and begain to plow down into the sea. the survivors confirmed this. citing as she sank the screws were still turning. a fateful turn of events. when a torpedo hits its SOP to STOP ENGINES. obviously to slow flooding and buy time for the crew to get off and send a distress call.
    .......................

    ok the trial. this was easier to find than I thought. a high ranking officer named Ernest J King (admiral) took charge of this trial. he had a very keen interest here. revenge. lets look at this Kangaroo court:

    Admiral Nimitz, the Fleet Admiral, did not agree, and ordered the Judge Advocate to address a Letter of Reprimand To Captain McVay in lieu of a Court Martial.

    Now, it is most unusual for an order of a Fleet Commander to be countermanded, but on the 25th. of September, the Chief of Naval Operations, Ernest King, wrote to the Secretary of the Navy, saying he disagreed with Nimitz, and recommended that McVay be brought to trial by Court Martial.

    It is interesting to note that the record discloses that King, as a junior officer had served with McVay's father, who had reprimanded him, plus public pressure for responsibility for this debacle to be placed some where, and the Secretary for the Navy directed McVay would stand trial. The die was cast, and McVay was selected as the bunny!
    source

    "It is interesting to note that the record discloses that King, as a junior officer had served with McVay's father, who had reprimanded him"

    the article does not say what year this happened. it was years before the war when King and McVay sr were more junior offices. I heard it was not a reprimanded but a court martial. what was this incident???

    McVay sr and King both served on the same ship. one night in the far east King tried to smuggle a prostitute aboard ship. McVay sr caught him and kneaded out the punishment. the grudge set the die cast.

    hence the reason King over ruled Nimitz. to get even. it should have been a mis trial. but was this info known ahead of trial??? good question.

    the prosecution insulted evenone by bring back from Japan the CO of th I-58 that sank the Indy. 1 Commander Mochitsura Hashimoto. he was put on the stand to tesify about the zig zag maneuver. one of the charges filed. failue to zig zag. but it back fired. when question Hashimoto said the zig zag made no differece at all. mearly a readjust in firing time. the defense also put a USN submarine CO on the stand who agreed. it was useless.
    ......bringing Hashimoto back to testify against McVay brought a public out cry from congress and the senate and a nation wide outrage by the press. the Indy was now front page news.

    Thanks for all of the links, pics. and information..that trial was a farce..it is tragic all across the board..it is something that can't ever be forgotten..I had seen the documentary when they were trying to find the Indie and their was 4 survivors on the trip...hopefully, one day it will be discovered..
