A look back at the USS Nimitz’ coming home of their sailors last year.
USS Nimitz (CVN-68) went home March last year, 341 days after sailors left their homes and families for a marathon of quarantines, training and a deployment to the Middle East and Pacific.
“It has been a long 11 months since we bid farewell to our homeport in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, and it feels great to be back,” Capt. Max Clark, Nimitz commanding officer, said in a Navy news release.
“I am so proud of the Sailors on board Nimitz. The hard work, dedication, and teamwork they demonstrated day in and day out to accomplish all missions assigned is commendable.”
