USS Enterprise Returns Home



After a six month deployment, nearly 4,500 sailors return home!

On Friday I had the pleasure of joining a few of my friends from Congressman Scott Rigell's office in welcoming home the USS Enterprise. We had the opportunity to socialize and hand out candy to the families that were patiently awaiting the arrival of their loved ones. Many arrived hours early to get the perfect waiting spot on the pier, while new mothers dressed up their precious babies in anticipation of their first meeting with daddy. It was an honor to be a part of such a special day for many. Welcome home USS Enterprise!
