In this March 8, 2012 photo, sailors move supplies and equipment as they prepare for the final deployment of the nuclear aircraft carrier USS Enterprise at the Norfolk Naval Station in Norfolk, Va. The ship's storied 50-year history includes action in several wars, a prominent role in the Cuban missile crisis and serving as a spotter ship for John Glenn's orbit of the Earth.
