USS Enterprise carrier taken out of active service (Yahoo News/AP)

From the article: “The world’s first nuclear-powered aircraft carrier was retired from active service on Saturday. The USS Enterprise ended its notable 51-year career during a ceremony at its home port at Naval Station Norfolk, where thousands of former crew members, ship builders and their families lined a pier to bid farewell to one of the most decorated ships in the Navy.”

Live long and prosper, Enterprise. She was a good ship.
