October 12th- Remember the USS Cole

The Arleigh Burke-class destroyer USS Cole was the target of a terrorist attack in Aden, Yemen, on October 12, 2000 during a scheduled refueling. The attack killed 17 crew members and injured 39 others. Cole was transported from Aden to Pascagoula by the Norwegian heavy transport ship M/V Blue Marlin. A 60 foot by 60 foot patch was welded to the hull of the destroyer before it was off-loaded from Blue Marlin.
