The deck of the aircraft carrier the USS Dwight D. Eisenhower is resurfaced as it is docked in Norfolk, Va., for repairs and maintenance, on Jan. 29, 2013. U.S. officials say that budget strains will force the Pentagon to cut its aircraft carrier presence in the Persian Gulf area from two carriers to one. The Eisenhower was in the Gulf but was brought home in December for maintenance. It will return later this month, but plans for the USS Harry S. Truman to deploy to the Gulf this week have been canceled. (Associated Press)
