Two tug boats gently push the USS Cole (DDG 67) to its mooring at Pier 4 of the Ingalls Shipyard in Pascagoula, Miss., on Dec. 24, 2000.  The Arleigh Burke class destroyer was the target of a terrorist attack in the port of Aden, Yemen, on Oct. 12, 2000, during a scheduled refueling.  The attack killed 17 crew members and injured 39 others.  The 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 the Blue Marlin.  DoD photo by Chief Petty Officer Johnny R.
