ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Fleet Week returns to New York this week after a year's hiatus because of last year's federal budget cuts. Three Navy ships and two Coast Guard cutters are making their way into New York Harbor Wednesday (May 21) to formally kick off a week of tours, parades and other festivities. Leading the procession will be the USS Cole, which was attacked by suicide bombers in Yemen in 2000, a dark precursor to 9/11. Fleet Week will run through May 27.
