Lynn Vincent and Sara Vladic on the USS Indianapolis Disaster

July 27, 2020

On July 30, 1945, the USS Indianapolis was sunk in what remains the biggest sea disaster in U.S. naval history. The “Leaders and Legends” podcast this week features an interview with Lynn Vincent and Sara Vladic; they are the authors of “Indianapolis” which is the definitive account of our namesake ship and the men who sailed on her. While both the ship’s mission and her fate was made famous by the movie “Jaws”, Lynn and Sara let us know there is much more to the legend.

About Girl Scouts of Central Indiana

We're 2.5 million strong—more than 1.7 million girls and 750,000 adults who believe in the power of every G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, Leader)™ to change the world. Our extraordinary journey began more than 100 years ago with the original G.I.R.L., Juliette Gordon “Daisy” Low. On March 12, 1912, in Savannah, Georgia, she organized the very first Girl Scout troop, and every year since, we’ve honored her vision and legacy, building girls of courage, confidence, and character who make the world a better place. We’re the preeminent leadership development organization for girls. And with programs from coast to coast and across the globe, Girl Scouts offers every girl a chance to practice a lifetime of leadership, adventure, and success.
