The Sullivans (1944)
Father Francis: [First lines] George Thomas Sullivan, I baptize thee in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost.
Mrs. Alleta Sullivan: [Last lines] Tom, our boys are afloat again.
Naval Officer at Boat Launching: Today, as we launch the destroyer, U.S.S. The Sullivans, the parents of the five Sullivan boys are here to share in the tribute to their sons, even as they shared their fighting spirit. As this ship slides down the ways, it carries with it a special armor all its own: The flaming and undaunted spirit that is the heritage of its name. The five Sullivan boys are gone; the U.S.S. The Sullivans carries on. May God bless and protect this ship. May her destiny be as glorious as the name she bears.
