Monday, members of the community and personnel from NAS Kingsville gathered at the Santa Gertrudis Cemetery for the remembrance of the USS Cole. 20 years ago, on Oct. 12, 17 lives were taken in a terrorist attack of the USS Cole. The remembrance ceremony is special to our community, because Mess Management Specialist Third Class Ronchester M. Santiago of Kingsville was one of the 17 who lost their life in the attack.
