The USS Cole guided missile destroyer homeported in Naval Station Norfolk, Virginia. It is one of 62 authorized Arleigh Burke-class guided missile destroyers, and one of 21 members of the Flight I-class that utilized the 5in (130mm) / 54 caliber gun mounts found on the earliest of the Arleigh Burke-class destroyers. The ship was delivered to the Navy in March 1996. In October 2000, Cole was the target of an attack carried out by al-Qaeda in the Yemeni port of Aden, when two suicide bombers detonated explosives carried in a small boat near the warship, killing 17 sailors, injuring 39 others, and damaging the ship.
