Adm. John Richardson, the Navy's top officer, said earlier Saturday the destroyer USS Mason appeared"to have come under attack." The Mason, an Arleigh Burke class of guided missile destroyer whose home port is Norfolk, Virginia, has been targeted twice before by missile fire out of Yemen, according to the U.S. Navy.
