    If you are or were a Destroyer Sailor, you very likely know the story of the Sullivan Brothers and the USS JUNEAU - CL-52. The brothers were five men from the one family serving aboard the Juneau in November of 1942. This was allowed when the all agreed they would not serve if not allowed to serve together. Normally this was against regulations.

    On St. Patrick’s Day, March 17, 2018, the wreckage was located in over 2 miles of water off the Solomons coast in the South Pacific.
