U.S.S. Eisenhower (CVN-69) at Naval Station Norfolk
Photographer: Mike Lynaugh - July 28, 2010
was very privileged to be asked by VFA-83 to travel to Virginia Beach
and spend two days with the squadron recording their homecoming from a
6 month deployment in the Gulf. On Tuesday July 27th I recorded
the squadron's homecoming at NAS Oceana and on Wednesday July 28th I
was at Naval Station Norfolk to record the squadron's homecoming as
the USS Eisenhower (CVN-69) returned to port. It was an
incredible two days.
I would like to thank LCDR Brian "Kookey" Mello, CDR Scott
"Intake" Kartvedt, and the aviatiors and family members of
VFA-83 for permitting me to be a part of this amazing event, it is
something I will never forget.
