Daniel Augustus Joseph Sullivan
Birth: Jul. 31, 1884
Death: Jan. 27, 1941

World War I Congressional Medal of Honor Recipient. Sullivan served as a Ensign, United States Naval Reserve Force. He was awarded his medal for service during World War I. His citation reads-For extraordinary heroism as an officer of the U.S.S. Cristabel in conflict with an enemy submarine on 21 May 1918. As a result of the explosion of a depth bomb dropped near the submarine, the Christabel was so badly shaken that a number of depth charges which had been set for firing were thrown about the deck and there was imminent danger that they would explode. Ens. Sullivan immediately fell on the depth charges and succeeded in securing them, thus saving the ship from disaster, which would inevitably have caused great loss of life.  (bio by: K)
