Default Probably long forgotten

While most remember the USS Cole, most dont recall the USS Stark, well in 1987 The USS Stark was on patrol in the persain gulf escorting tankers, when 2 exocet missles slammed into her side killing 37 US sailors. those missles supposedly were accidently fired from a Iraqi Mirage fighter on patrol. just another reason to take saddam out of power as far as im concerned.
god speed our troops, bring them home safely, and treat them like the heros they really are!!

I remember.
The Brits won't forget the HMS Sheffield either.
Same missile, same supplier.
