Petty Officer 1st Class Robert Dorr returned home Dec. 16 from a nine-month cruise aboard the aircraft carrier USS Nimitz to meet his almost-4-month-old daughter, Grace, for the first time. Dorr, his wife Lindsey Dorr, and Grace live in Oak Harbor while Robert commutes to Everett for at least one more year to serve on Nimitz. He has spent his entire 14-year career at NAS Whidbey prior to this tour aboard the Nimitz hoping to return to Whidbey Island with his next orders.
