I recently had the opportunity to interview our absolutely wonderful ship sponsor, Kelly Sullivan.

Kelly is the granddaughter of Albert Sullivan, one of the five brothers who gave their lives at the battle of Guadalcanal in WWII, leaving behind a legacy that we carry with us every day on USS THE SULLIVANS.

Listen to her talk about her 28 years of experience with USS THE SULLIVANS as our Ship Sponsor.
