  1. I was deployed on the ship back in 42′ the Sullivans were some cazy sons of bitches. everyone thinks they were killed in battle but really it was a government cover up. 6 months prior to their deaths they uncovered a secret about the boats cargo. the boat was actually delivering ballistic missles to the german forces. they used this info to try and black mail the government. but turns out the government killed them and tied cinder blocks to their legs and threw them into the buffalo harbor.

    • Stop playing with the credulous. sorry Jake but he’s kidding. The ship here was NAMED for the sullivans it wasn’t their ship. that sank in the war. also the US did not have ballistic missiles, no one did in 1942. The germans were developing the V2 but no one else was close.
