BREMERTON (AP) —Families are eagerly awaiting the return of the aircraft carrier Stennis. The Navy says the ship will return to port in Bremerton Friday afternoon.
The aircraft carrier and its 3,000 sailors are completing an eight-month, 66,000 mile deployment to the western Pacific.
It included more than 1,300 sorties in direct support of fighting in Afghanistan.
