Some of the survivors of the last ship to go down in World War II are in Acadiana for a reunion. The air carrier, Bismarck Sea, was sunk during the Iwo Jima Invasion. Kamikazes hit the ship, sinking it within ninety minutes killing over 300 hundred crew members on February 21, 1945. KATC's Kristen Holloway will have the story of these brave veterans at 10.
