BREMERTON, Washington — The Navy plans to send the Everett-based aircraft carrier Nimitz to the Puget Sound Naval Shipyard next year for a 16-month overhaul.
The Kitsap Sun reports (http://bit.ly/1mk72vG ) the Navy promises more information soon on how the move across Puget Sound to Bremerton will affect families.
The Nimitz returned to Everett in December from a nine-month deployment in which it saw action in the Afghanistan War. It also entered the Mediterranean Sea last November where the strike group conducted operations with NATO allies.
