Was that copy and pasted, by any chance?

What has the Sullivan brothers and the sole survivor policy got to do with this ship?

Not complaining, excuse to learn more history :)

It was because of this battle (1st battle of Guadalcanal) that sunk the Atlanta cruiser Juneau. All five of the Sullivan brothers were on that ship and perished. It was because of this that that the USN made the Sole Survivor Policy to ensure that a family does not lose all their son in the war, and any last surviving son of the family in the navy will be assigned to a non combat job.

The description could use more polish, as it isn't immediately clear to non-naval/history buffs that the Juneau is an Atlanta class cruiser.
