USS Cole Cruises Past


While sailing the York River on a calm afternoon, the guided missile cruiser USS Cole transited the Coleman Bridge on the way from Norfolk to the Yorktown Naval Weapons Station. Kathy Hiles used to live nearby on the shores of Gloucester Point and was intrigued to see the ship. Her boyfriend Tony Anderson said, “You want to keep a wide berth of Navy ships, especially that one.” Last week we saw the USS Iowa sail by.
