Repaired Destroyer Cole Is Deployed Overseas

From Times Wire Reports

The Cole and its crew of 340 pulled out of port for the destroyer’s first overseas deployment since it was bombed by terrorists three years ago in Yemen’s port of Aden.

The explosion killed 17 crew members, wounded 39 and nearly sank the destroyer.

A crowd of about 100 family members watched as the ship left the Norfolk Naval Station.

The guided-missile destroyer was brought back to the United States and underwent $250 million in repairs.
