USS Cole Underway

CNN.com – USS Cole embarks on first overseas voyage since 2000 suicide attack

The guided-missile destroyer was brought back to the United States and underwent $250 million in repairs at Northrop Grumman’s Ingalls shipyard in Mississippi following the October 12, 2000, attack.

The explosion killed 17 crew members, wounded 39 and nearly sank the destroyer.

It’s heartening to see this destroyer back on duty, this time screening the Enterprise group.

Fair winds and following seas to the crew of the Cole.
