USS The Sullivans DD-537 Fletcher class destroyerKit

Destroyers are named for naval heroes and leaders. Thus the Navy decided to honor the five Sullivan brothers by naming a new destroyer The Sullivans. The five Sullivan brothers — George, Francis, Joseph, Madison, and Albert Sullivan, aged 19 to 27 — lost their lives when their ship, USS Juneau, was sunk by a Japanese submarine in November 1942 in the Naval Battle of Guadalcanal. This was the greatest military loss by any one American family during World War II.

USS The Sullivans, a 2,050-ton Fletcher class destroyer, was built at San Francisco, California. Commissioned in September 1943, her World War II service was mainly as a component of the Pacific fast carrier task forces. In that role, she participated in most of the carrier operations of 1944-45, notably including the Marshalls, Marianas, Leyte and Ryukyus campaigns and the February-March 1945 raids on the Japanese home islands.

The Sullivans was placed in reserve after the war, but returned to active service in July 1951. Operating in the Atlantic and off Korea until 1953, she then became a unit of the Atlantic Fleet and made periodic deployments to the Mediterranean Sea. Her final service was as a Naval Reserve training ship. Decommissioned for the last time in January 1965, The Sullivans remained in reserve until 1977 and then became a museum ship. She is presently on public exhibit at Buffalo, New York.
