This past winter I was honored to have one of my homecoming photos featured in The 5 Star News, the USS Nimitz (CVN-68) Association Newsletter. My photo of the carrier taken in December with the Olympic mountains in the background was on the front page of their article highlighting the achievements of their latest deployment:
“This deployment tested the 42-year-old Nimitz,
which is the oldest active service nuclear powered
aircraft carrier in the fleet.
In the gulf, the strike group operated in
extremely hot conditions, where the heat index
often exceeded 150 degrees and the seawater
temperature hovered around 100 degrees.”
