The DD-537 was originally named Putnam, on the 6th February she was renamed The Sullivans in memory of the five Sullivan brothers who were lost when the light cruiser Juneau (CL-52) succumbed to Japanese torpedo's. She was launched on 4th April 1943, sponsored by Mrs Thomas F. Sullivan, the Mother of the five Sullivan brothers & was commissioned on 30th September 1943.

The Sullivans deployed to the Pacific, arriving at Pearl Harbour on the 28th December 1943. For the next eighteen months she was actively engaged in operations ranging from plane guard for the fast carriers, shore bombardment & anti-Kamikaze picket duty off Okinawa.

On the 10th January she was decommissioned at San Diego, but later re-commissioned on 6th July 1951 for the Korean War. The Sullivans received nine battle stars for WWII service & two for service in the Korean War.
