Sailors on board react as the USS  Enterprise returns to Norfolk Naval Station as the 51-year-old ship completes its 25th and final deployment. The Enterprise began shutting down its eight nuclear reactors almost as soon as it arrived at its pier, where thousands of cheering family members and friends welcomed the ship home from its 25th and final deployment after nearly eight months at sea.
