Fifth anniversary of USS Cole attack

Michelle Malkin and William at Florida Masochist have informative and moving remembrance posts marking today's fifth anniversary of the U.S.S. Cole attack which killed 17 of our sailors and wounded dozens more. Both blogs have photos.

Michelle notes that Stars and Stripes has an extensive tribute.

In remembrance and gratitude, these last lines from the Navy Hymn:

From rock and tempest, fire and foe,
Protect them wheresoe'er they go;
Thus evermore shall rise to Thee,
Glad hymns of praise from land and sea.
