Buffalo and Erie County Naval and Military Park: Earlier this week, our crews and staff were able to access some interior spaces on board USS The Sullivans, including the Sullivans Memorial compartment, to begin recovering artifacts.

At least 40 key artifacts have been removed safely from the ship completely unharmed, including a scale model of the ship, pictures of the Sullivan brothers, artifacts from the Sullivan family church in Waterloo, Iowa, historic flags, and the Sullivan family tree.

There are still many more areas and items to examine but we are grateful to know that these important artifacts are safe. Thank you to our crews and partners who continue to work every day to #SaveTheSullivans!
