  • Triumph and Tragety: USS Indianapolis: The Ship of Doom!
  • Hunter Scott had written to the survivors of the U.S.S. Indianapolis and, with the few that responded, they had spoken to Hunter about their personal experiences around the sinking. Almost all of them agreed that Captian McVay should not have been court-martialed.  
  • Popularity
  • With this information, Hunter based his History fair project, the topic being triumph and tragedy, on the Indianapolis. He made it to regionals where he was disqualified for using notebooks from the survivors' experiences. 
  • The Mission
  • Although being disqualified, Joe Scarborough, congressman and good friend of Hunter's family, offered to put his project up in his office, since it was better than letting his project get thrown away. It was also a great topic to be discussed in a navy town. 
  • What Comes Next?
  • Hunter's project had gotten lots of praise and acclaim and became popular in the span of a few weeks. It was also noticed in other countries too. He even got onto The Tonight Show with David Letterman.  
  • The newfound fame that Hunter acquired got him in touch with Kimo McVay, son of Charles McVay. Along with the other survivors, they traveled to get people on their side for a plan to lift the court-martial.
  • Hunter was able to convince congressmen and women to back him up on his plan to clear Captain McVay's name through a bill in Congress. There were many disputes over the affair, but Hunter isn't going to give up.
