USS Nimitz to Operate in Mediterranean

The nuclear-powered aircraft carrier USS Nimitz (CVN 68) and her escort, guided-missile cruiser USS Monterey (CG 61), conducted a northbound transit of the Suez Canal, Oct. 20.

USS Nimitz was most recently operating in the Red Sea to provide the U.S. options for responding to crisis situations.

USS Nimitz will operate in the Mediterranean Sea and train with international partners before returning to her home port of Everett, WA.

Nimitz entered the U.S. 5th Fleet area of operations, June 9.
