The story of the Sullivan brothers



Yesterday, I was flipping channels and saw a bit of a movie about 5 brothers who enlisted in the US Navy after Pearl Harbor.   

All 5 were killed in 1942 when the USS Juneau was hit by enemy fire and exploded on the way back to port.  

It's a true story!   Shortly after, the US restructured its policy on siblings serving together. 

Later, two destroyers were named after the Sullivans.
