Navy Petty Officer First Class MELINDA J. AMBERS, daughter of Beverly A. Watkins of Oak Harbor, along with 5,500 sailors and marines assigned to the Enterprise Carrier Strike Group, recently arrived in Norfolk, Va., following a seven-and-one-half-month deployment supporting operations in the Mediterranean and the Arabian seas.

USS Enterprise’s return to Norfolk will be the 25th and final homecoming in her 51 years of distinguished service. The aircraft carrier is scheduled to be inactivated Dec. 1 in a ceremony at Norfolk Naval Station.

While deployed, Enterprise Carrier Strike Group served in the U.S. Fifth and Sixth Fleet areas of responsibility, conducting maritime security operations, theater security cooperation efforts and missions in support of Operation Enduring Freedom.

During her 238 days away from Norfolk, “Big E,” as Enterprise is affectionately known, steamed 80,968 miles and Carrier Air Wing 1 flew more than 8,000 sorties in support of Operation Enduring Freedom and exercises in the Fifth and Sixth Fleet areas of responsibility.

Enterprise was commissioned Nov. 25, 1961 as the eighth ship to bear that name. Big E was the world’s first nuclear-powered aircraft carrier. During her 51 years of service, Enterprise deployed 25 times and participated in every major conflict since the Cuban Missile Crisis.

Ambers is a 1995 graduate of Franklin D. Roosevelt High School of Dallas, Texas and joined the Navy in July 1997.
