Default USS Cole returns to service

Press release from Northrop Grumnan.

Caption:
USS COLE READY TO RETURN - USS Cole had a successful sea trial in the Gulf of Mexico this month, during her first underway period since the ship was attacked in Aden, Yemen, in October 2000. The Aegis guided missile destroyer has completed a 14-month restoration at Northrop Grumman Corporation's Ingalls Operations in Pascagoula, Miss. The Cole will depart on Friday, April 19, 2002, and return to her homeport in Norfolk, Va.

May God bless her and all who serve aboard her. As they said in an Otto Preminger movie, "A fast ship in harm's way".

She was re-floated about a week after the attack.
