USS Enterprise CVN-65 decoms today
Today is truly the end of an era. At 1300, we decommission the USS Enterprise, our first nuclear powered aircraft carrier. After a distinguished 51 year career, she moves off into history. Fellow veterans, should you think about her tonight, raise a toast to the grand old lady and those who served on her.
I will be one of some 15,000 people at the ceremony -- I doubt there will be a dry eye in the place.
