'Lest We Forget'


The Naval Battle of Guadalcanal was as ferocious
and decisive as any battle of World War II. It
was not won cheaply. The night action of Friday
the thirteenth of November, 1942 was the last day
of life for eight ships and hundreds of sailors
including the USS Juneau CL-52. Juneau was in the
thick of the battle until an enemy torpedo knocked
her out of action. Retiring from the battle, an
enemy submarine took Juneau in her sights and
at 11:01 another torpedo found its mark. The cruiser
disintegrated instantaneously and completely.
All but 10 of her crew of 700 perished including
the five Sullivan brothers.
