USS Shiloh (CG-67)

USS "Shiloh" (CG-67) is a "Ticonderoga"-class guided missile cruiser of the United States Navy, named in remembrance of the Battle of Shiloh in the American Civil War. She was built at the Bath Iron Works in Maine.

With her guided missiles and rapid-fire cannons, she is capable of facing and defeating threats in the air, on the sea, or the ashore, and underneath the sea. She also carries two Seahawk LAMPS multi-purpose helicopters, mainly for anti-submarine warfare, (ASW).

On 3 September 1996, while in the "Carl Vinson" battle group, the "Shiloh" launched 14 Tomahawk cruise missiles in Operation Desert Strike against Iraq.She deployed with the Battle Group again in July 2002, and was among the first cruisers to launch missiles in Operation Iraqi Freedom. The "Shiloh" returned to her homeport San Diego, California on 25 April 2003, ending an unusually long nine-month deployment.

In January 2005, she participated in Operation Unified Assistance, rendering aid to those who suffered from the December 26 2004 tsunami off the coast of Aceh, Indonesia. The "Shiloh" was one of the first American ships to arrive on scene.

On June 22 2006, a Standard Missile Three (or SM-3) launched from "Shiloh" intercepted a multi-stage ballistic missile launched from Barking Sands, Kauai, Hawaii. [http://www.navy.mil/view_single.asp?id=36116]
