Yorktown Leaves Pascagoula

The USS Yorktown and its crew have left the Gulf Coast headed out on a mission. Wives and friends waved goodbye to crew members yesterday, without knowing exactly where the sailors were headed.

Pascagoula Navy officials will not release information about ship deployments during military operations. The Aegis cruiser was built at Ingalls and recently received a two million dollar upgrade.

It is part of the Navy's Smart Ship project, which allows warships to be operated with smaller crews.
