Remember the USS Cole


Today is the 5th year anniversary of the terrorist bomb attack upon the USS Cole. Seventeen sailors were killed and 39 others were wounded in the blast on this day.

Before there was a 9/11, there was a 10/12. On what was supposed to be a short refueling stop in the port of Aden, Yemen, the destroyer USS Cole was rocked by an explosion that tore a gash in her hull which was over 40 feet across. The sailors who were killed on this day should never be forgotten, because they were the first to die in this century of the global war against terror.
