USS Nimitz to leave Friday on long deployment

EVERETT -- The aircraft carrier USS Nimitz is scheduled to pull away from its pier at Naval Station Everett on Friday.
The ship's impending deployment, scheduled to last from six to 10 months, eventually will take the crew of the warship into the Persian Gulf.
With a crew of about 3,000 men and women, the Nimitz will be joined at sea by its air wing, adding about 2,000 personnel.
This is the first major deployment of the Nimitz from its Everett home port. The Nimitz is the oldest of the Navy's currently operating air craft carriers. It was commissioned in 1975.
Navy Capt. Jeffrey Ruth is the commander of the carrier. He previously served aboard the USS Abraham Lincoln when the Lincoln was based in Everett.
