~100 crew who survived USS Juneau's sinking on 13th November were left adrift for eight days, suffering hypothermia, dehydration, & shark attacks. A B-17 bomber crew's report of survivors went unnoticed among routine paperwork for a week. 10 were rescued.

  • @RealTimeWWII A destroyer was named after the brothers, the USS The Sullivans, and is docked in Buffalo, NY as part of a naval museum. Next to it is the USS Little Rock and the submarine, the USS Croaker. It's a really nice museum, and they can use the business! https://t.co/bElfkn8oaN

  • @RealTimeWWII What I’ve wondered in case of disasters like this is, do the rescued soldiers go back to fighting? And if so how quickly? Surviving that ordeal seems like something that would cause severe ptsd for the rest of their lives.
