Summary of the eRumor:
This is a forwarded email that
said that five U.S. Navy aircraft carriers were docked at the Naval Base
in Norfolk, Virginia. The email compare the setting to Battleship
Row in Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941. The email warns that this
is a breach of a long-standing Navy protocol to avoid a massive enemy
strike on major US forces.
It is true that 5 aircraft carriers were
docked at the Naval Base in Norfolk but the urgent need for concern may
be over. At the original time of this writing there were only 3 active
carriers at Norfolk.
The photo in the eRumor showing five carriers docked at U.S. Naval Base at Norfolk
is said to have been taken in December 2012. The carriers were the
USS Dwight D. Eisenhower (CVN 69),
George H.W. Bush (CVN 77),
USS Enterprise (CVN 65),
USS Harry S. Truman
(CVN 75), and
USS Abraham Lincoln (CVN 72).
Contrary to the eRumor none of the carriers were ordered to Norfolk by
the Obama Administration. Four of the carriers were in port
for various maintenance such as major overhauls, flight deck resurfacing
and refueling. This according to a
February 25, 2013 article by MPR-News of Minnesota Public
Radio. The article reported that the "Navy also says the
story about this being the first time so many carriers were moored
together since Pearl Harbor is untrue."
The first and oldest carrier in the U.S. Navy, The USS Enterprise was
The USS Enterprise is
50 years old and was deactivated Dec. 1, 2012. After
decommissioning of the nuclear-powered vessel the Navy ordered that
her fuel be removed and then be towed to Puget Sound for scrap. Defueling
of the Enterprise is expected to be completed in 2015.
Because of costs, there are no plans to make a floating museum of this
historical carrier, according to the Enterprise website.
The USS Eisenhower, according to the
Eisenhower website, was redeployed in mid February 2013 to support the 5th and 6th Naval Fleets.
The deployment may have been brief, according to a February 2014 article
found on the
Eisenhower website that said the carrier returned to Norfolk in
September 2013. The article said that the crew of the carrier
"participated in Ike's first shipwide general quarters (GQ) training,
Feb. 5." The article also said there were "several other training
phases: an ITT phase, a partial integrated training phase, and
eventually a full integrated training phase (that was) slated for mid-May."
The USS George H. W. Bush
was in for repairs and the USS Lincoln is in
for an overhaul. This is all dependent on future funding from
Congress. According to a
February 12, 2014 article by WTKR-TV News, a CBS Affiliate in
Norfolk, the USS George H. W. Bush went on deployment on February 15.
The USS Truman recently made the
news as one of the victims of the Obama Administration’s
sequestration. She lays in Norfolk along with the Bush and
which are awaiting funding for repairs.

BIG MISTAKE in Norfolk! Remember Pearl
Harbor 1941 ?
... an outrage of epic proportions
........ But - after all ( with an unknown level of election fraud ) the
clueless majority have re elected a subversive alien to continue as
president ...The order to place all 5 aircraft carriers into the same
anchorage space is in flagrant defiance of national security interests
.. The White House is occupied by a 5th columnist ! The USA is in grave
What is wrong with this picture?
Thought that ever since WWII and Pearl Harbor, we were never to do this
again! Just think if some disgruntled country would send one nuke over
and take out all of these and the sailors aboard.
The picture is of the five nuclear
carriers... Just like Battleship Row, Pearl Harbor, December 7, 1941.
This picture was taken the other day
The Obama Administration ordered 5
nuclear carriers ...into harbor for "routine" (?) inspections. Heads of
the Navy were flabbergasted by the directive.
NORFOLK, VA. (February 8, 2013). The first time since WWII that five
U.S. aircraft carriers were docked together.
USS Dwight D. Eisenhower (CVN 69), USS George H.W. Bush (CVN 77), USS
