Fair winds and following seas, Nimitz. Watching the carrier leave Port Gardner Bay in Everett as it leaves for a 6-10 month deployment. We will probably have moved away by the time it comes back.
Waving and being able to see my baby go was the best and worst thing I’ve ever done.
Best of luck to everyone on the ship. Especially the few people I went to A-school with. You guys are awesome.
sigh sigh sigh i literally live like 4 miles away from a port, and i know there was a usn ship docked there four weeks...
