USS COLE MEMORIAL COIN
On October 12, 2000, the USS Cole was attacked by a small group of suicide terrorists in the Port of Aden, Yemen.  The attack killed 17 sailors and wounded an additional 39 sailors.  Soon after this senseless and barbaric attack on the USS Cole, the above coin was designed and made by the owner of Stateside Online Shopping.  The coins were then sent to a Senior Chief onboard the USS Cole for presentation to the families who lost loved ones during the attack on the ship.    As a Navy Veteran of 25 years, I felt compelled to do something for the families after the attack.  The USS COLE Memorial Coins was just a small token to show my deepest respect for fallen shipmates, my love the Navy and my Country.

The USS COLE Memorial coin is not for sale.   This Memorial Coin was only made available to the families who lost loved ones, their fellow sailors who served onboard the USS COLE during the attack and those in their Chain-of-Command.
