I could barely spot the enormous USS Nimitz as I was walking my old pug moments ago along Beach Drive.   

According to the Whidbey News Times, the Nimitz is bringing home Electronic Attack Squadron 135 "Black Ravens"

"The squadron is coming home after an eight-month combat deployment aboard USS Nimitz (CVN 68). Five EA-6B Prowlers and 20 aviators arrive at NAS Whidbey Island midday on Saturday. Then, on Sunday, 180 maintenance and support personnel will arrive at Naval Base Kitsap, stepping off USS Nimitz to waiting family and friends.

A Navy news release states the squadron left for deployment last July in support of joint and naval operations throughout Asia and the Middle East including Operation Enduring Freedom to provide electronic attack support for Carrier Air Wing 11 and ground forces."
