Stennis Leaves Port

The USS John C. Stennis aircraft carrier left from its port in San Diego today, headed for the Persian Gulf. The USS Stennis was named after the former Senator from Mississippi, John C. Stennis. The ship and its battle group carry about 85-hundred sailors and marines.

Originally, the trip was to be made a month and a half from now, but the current situation in the region forced the ship to set sail early. The voyage to the Persian Gulf is expected to take six weeks.
