Looks like the USS Indianapolis - CA-35.  Delivered the first A Bomb to Tinian then was sunk on its return voyage.

I remember Quint (Robert Shaw) in Jaws talking about being in the water with the sharks.

Fyi - Tinian is right next to Saipan.  My dad was a sailor stationed at Saipan when the A Bomb was dropped.
