At 11:18 on the morning of October 12, 2000, while USS Cole was refueling in Aden Harbor, Yemen, terrorist suicide attackers detonated an explosive-laden boat against the ship's port side. The blast tore a hole 40 by 60 feet in the ship's hull, killing 17 crewmembers, wounding 37, and imperiling the ship. Undaunted, after 16 months of repair in Mississippi, a battle-ready USS Cole sailed home again to Norfolk.
By their selfless devotion to duty, the crew of USS Cole personified
