USS Juneau that sank during WWII with five Sullivan brothers aboard discovered in Pacific

A team funded by Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen discovered the wreckage of a military ship that sunk with more than 600 aboard, including five brothers, during World War II.

The USS Juneau wreckage was discovered on March 17 about 2.6 miles beneath the surface near the coast of the Solomon Islands in the South Pacific, according to a statement on Allen’s website. The ship was sunk by a Japanese torpedo in November 1942. Only 10 men survived.
