The Sullivans Destroyer | Ghosts of Buffalo Naval Park

Naval Park – Buffalo, New York, USA

Named for five brothers who lost their lives in the Battle of the Solomon Islands in 1942 when their ship sunk.  Overall, the Allies lost about 7,100 men in this campaign before retaking the Islands. 

The Destroyer is an excellent example of the largest and most important class of ship used during World War II.

Named after the Sullivan Brothers.  Five military brothers who refused to split during the war.  They were all killed at the same time during in the same battle.  George survived the longest in the waters before drowning.

Due to the boat’s namesakes… many believe George is the resident ghost.  Racked with guilt for not being able to save his brothers.  Now trapped in the shop which bears their name.
