USS Nimitz Returns Home Today
The aircraft carrier, USS Nimitz and her battle group returns home today after a one year deployment. It is a joyful day for the crew of more than 5,600 and for families that have been missing their spouses and parents.
There will be many celebrations as this great city welcomes home the brave warriors who sacrifice so much to defend our freedom. I will never forget the night I spent on the USS Midway with my youngest son and a group of scouts. These sailors are to be commended for all they do for our country.
If you see someone wearing a military uniform, take a moment to say thank you for serving our country. These people and their families have done so much so that we can have a better life.
To all the men and women who are serving our country, "THANK YOU!"
