USS Donald Cook (DDG-75) is an Arleigh Burke-class guided missile destroyer in the United States Navy. Named for Donald Cook, a Vietnam War prisoner of war who died in captivity, the destroyer was commissioned in 1998. It was one of the first U.S. warships to come to the aid of the USS Cole after it was damaged by suicide bombers on 12 October 2000. In 2003, the ship fired Tomahawk missiles during Operation Iraqi Freedom. The only Navy ship to always fly the POW flag.
