Navy Petty Officer 2nd Class Andrew M. LaPointe, whose wife, Jamie, is the daughter of Vicky Watson of Oregon, and Donald Watson, of Oregon, along with nearly 12,000 past and current crewmembers, family and friends attended the inactivation of aircraft carrier USS Enterprise.

The world's first nuclear powered aircraft carrier recently completed its 25th and final deployment and returned to its homeport of Naval Station Norfolk for a scheduled inactivation, held prior to the ship's terminal offload program and subsequent decommissioning.

The inactivation ceremony was the last official public event for the ship, and served as a celebration of life for the ship and the more than 100,000 Sailors who served aboard.
