The entire collection has been reunited and donated by Sedivi's family to the . Naval Institute. In July and August 2014, the Institute launched an effort via Kickstarter to raise the funds needed to restore and digitize all 1,650 photos. More than 73 individuals contributed to the Kickstarter campaign with additional gifts coming directly to the Naval Institute in support of this project. Thanks to these generous donations, the Naval Institute has ensured that this important collection of photographs is available for the survivors and their families, as well as historians, the public, and future generations. The digitized photos are available for download and purchase through this online gallery and a traveling exhibit is currently being created. This exhibit will debut in July 2015 at the 70th USS Indianapolis Survivors Reunion in Indianapolis, Indiana.
A film in the works now and aiming for a release date next year makes the case that Gen. George Patton , who died three months after the end of World War II, was assassinated, perhaps by the KGB, due to his outspoken opposition to Communism and the former USSR.
The feature-length documentary, dubbed Silence Patton: First Victim of the Cold War , is from writer-director Robert Orlando . The filmmaker's most recent movie, A Polite Bribe , is about the Apostle Paul and set for release through VCI/Cinedigm on Tuesday.
Patton died Dec. 21, 1945, in a hospital from complications suffered a few weeks earlier when the car in which he was a passenger was struck by a two-ton truck. Three others involved in the accident were only slightly injured.
