Families welcomed their sailors home Sunday as the USS Enterprise strike group returned home to Naval Station Norfolk.

The USS Enterprise is the nation’s oldest active duty warship, the first nuclear-powered aircraft carrier and a history-making symbol of America’s naval might for half a century.

This was the last deployment for the 51-year-old Enterprise, which will be retired and cut up for scrap metal soon.
