The date is October 12, 2000. USS Cole is moored in Aden, Yemen, for refueling. Suddenly, senselessly, and without provocation, a boat loaded with explosives is piloted straight into the side of the USS Cole. Seventeen sailors perished due to the explosion and repercussions of the blast.

Today is October 12, 2010. Ten years have passed since the cowardly attack on the USS Cole. She's been repaired, and still sails as mighty as ever. Those 17 sailors do not. Please, remember those who have paid the ultimate price for life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

The 17 sailors who died in that blast 10 years ago are gone, but must never be forgotten!

Blessings on their memories and to all those who have given their lives, in peace and war. I still pray for peace, at home and abroad.
