Northrop Grumman Ship Systems (NGSS) Pascagoula, MS. (Apr. 19, 2002) -- The U.S. Navy guided missile destroyer USS Cole (DDG 67) gets underway after completing extensive repairs to the ships hull and interior spaces. Visible as she pulls away from the pier is her newly restored portside hull and superstructure. The Cole has been in Pascagoula for the past 14 months undergoing repairs after a terrorist bomb blew a hole in her port side while refueling in the port city of Aden, Yemen, killing 17 sailors. Cole will return to her homeport of Norfolk, Virginia. U.S. Navy photo by Photographers Mate 1st Class Tina M. Ackerman.
