The Quest to Bring a USS Indianapolis Hero Home
Made of Gold: A New Documentary Premiering This Memorial Day
For Palmer, age 36, the legend of Rozzano intrigued her from a young age. "I saw the photographs and heard stories of him from my grandmother"
In April of 2016, Rozzano's decendants came together to give him a long-overdue memorial and a monument was placed in a public park in his hometown of Lorain, Ohio, a suburb West of Cleveland. Due to media coverage and memorial preparations, items of Rozzano's surfaced, including a letter which had been hidden for 70 years. "All this time, in searching for my uncle, we found that he was looking for us, too" said Palmer.
This Memorial Day (2016), the world will learn of Rozzano's legacy. The film in it's entirety will premiere at The Lorain Palace Theater in Lorain on Sunday, May 29 at 2PM. It will also premiere online via YouTube. "It is my hope to pay tribute to Johnnie and all the men of the USS Indianapolis through this film" Palmer said, "Men who so appropriately belong to our country's Greatest Generation."
It is a story of a legacy; a film about a hero. A documentary full of miracles, in the quest to bring a soldier home.
