Enterprise’s anchor heads to sea once more

While a number of relics from the country’s first nuclear-fueled supercarrier, USS Enterprise (CVN-65), are being incorporated into her replacement, CVN-80, which is set to join the fleet sometime in 2027ish, at least one large chunk of the old warrior is headed to sea much sooner. A 32-ton chunk at that, circa 1957.

According to Ingalls:

USS George Washington’s (CVN 73) mid-life refueling and complex overhaul (RCOH), currently underway at Newport News Shipbuilding, includes extensive upgrades and modernization. But this time it also includes a bit of U.S. Navy history – an anchor from Enterprise (CVN 65). Instead of trying to repair a damaged anchor on CVN 73, the Navy suggested shipbuilders swap it for one from the decommissioned CVN 65.

Look around your AO. Do you see more than a few people with whom you share values? If not, how do you expect a majoritarian democracy to work there, especially without any effective check against local, state, or Federal power?
