My town of Hampton, VA is on the coast and just across the Chesapeake Bay is Norfolk, home of the Atlantic Fleet.
Yesterday as I drove across the bridge/tunnel from Hampton to Norfolk to go to work, at that exact moment, the USS Enterprise aircraft carrier passed over too. And it looked like this:
The USS Enterprise carrier group was returning to Norfolk from a six month (and 60,000 mile) deployment. Seeing these big ships come and go right in front of you is always a fun and exciting sight. But seeing these service men and women come home to their families like this always gives me goosebumps. Thanks to all of you for your service.
