The Sullivans Elementary School was named after 5 brothers, Albert, Frank, Joseph, Matthew and George Sullivan, who all served in the US Navy during WWII on the light ship, The Juneau. The Juneau sank near the Solomon Islands after being struck twice by a Japanese torpedo.

All five brothers died as a result of the sinking ship;3 on the ship and 2 in the water while waiting to be rescued.As a result of the death of all five Sullivan brothers, the U.S. War Department adopted the Sole Survivor Policy so that no other family would have to suffer the grief of losing all of their sons during war time.

The Sullivan brothers also were honored in the naming of two Navy ships.
