Steel Jaw Scribe reminds us of the events of 8 years ago. The story of the attack on the USS Cole, what it cost, and how the survivors rallied to save their ship deserves to be remembered.

Give me a strong ship and the men to sail her, for I intend to go in harm’s way.

  1. The 1983 Beirut barracks bombing.Pr. Reagan’s worst decision as President, in my opinion, was to pull out after this attack. It strengthened and encouraged the Islamists, and led to further attacks. 241 Marines died. A friend of mine, and someone you know, was there. look for details next week.
