Such a Strange Feeling

The Enterprise is retiring.

I never served on the USS Enterprise, CVN-65.  In theory I have no connection to her at all.  Yet, to know that the Enterprise is going to be stricken from the inventory, defueled and a shell of her former self . . . it’s kinda sad.

But it does not end badly.  I don’t know if the Enterprise is going to be turned into razor blades, but I am very, very glad to know that she has to be retired so they can reuse her name when they commission CVN-80: USS Enterprise

Good job, United States Navy.  It makes several of us unreasonably satisfied to know that there will still be a pride-of-the-fleet Enterprise plying the seas.
