NORFOLK, Va. - The USS Mahan returned to its homeport, Naval Station Norfolk, Friday afternoon.

The Mahan was deployed as part of the USS Dwight D Eisenhower Carrier Strike Group. It was the second deployment in less than a year for the strike group.

The carrier returned to Norfolk on July 18.

Much of the time away was spent at sea because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

USS Mahan (DDG-72) is an Arleigh Burke-class destroyer in service for the United States Navy.

News 3 reporter Erin Miller was at the homecoming. She shares stories from those who were aboard the ship.
