Nimitz to visit

PORT HADLOCK — The USS Nimitz will visit Naval Magazine Indian Island in late July for a few days.

The ship will not be open to the public for visits or tours.

During the aircraft carrier’s time at Indian Island, ship and base personnel will be focusing on their operations at the Indian Island ammunition pier.

The ship’s crew is trying to maximize their time at the pier to offload ammunition and conduct training on board. At this time, there is no plan for ship personnel to spend time off Indian Island, according to a news release.

This will be the fifth aircraft carrier visit at Indian Island since 2000.

USS Nimitz is the lead ship of the Nimitz class of U.S. Navy aircraft carriers.
