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.
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 of the coast of Aceh Indonesia. The SHILOH was one of the first American ship's 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.
In August of 2006, she arrived on station at Yokosuka Naval Base in Yokosuka, Japan as part of a joint U.S.-Japanese ballistic missile defense program.
In the Stephen Coonts novel Flight of the Intruder, there is an aircraft carrier with the same name.
