Salute the 17 and their brave shipmates.

UPDATE: Others remember their shipmates:

Eisenhower (CVN 69) Command Master Chief James Russell tosses 17 roses into the sea during a remembrance ceremony to honor the sacrifice of the 17 Sailors who died in the terrorist attack on the guided missile destroyer USS Cole (DDG 67).

UPDATE: USS Cole crew remembers:
On 12 October 2006, COLE conducted a ceremony at 1118, the time of the blast, to mark the significant events that occurred on this date. The ceremony consisted of a prayer, The Navy Hymn and a moment of silence. At the conclusion of the ceremony the ship’s bell rang seventeen times in memory of the seventeen sailors who lost their lives. VADM Walsh, Commander Fifth Fleet, sent a message to the crew to mark the poignant anniversary.
