One of the nice things aboard the U.S.S. The Sullivans and the U.S.S. Little Rock were the bright brass work all over.  There were plaques, brass name plated, switch plates and wonderful polished things everywhere. I can only imagine the countless hours the sailors had to spend to get these things so shiny.  All at the Buffalo and Erie County Naval and Military Museum.
