Anderson and Cramar Kinter are just two of the more than 6,500 Sailors and Marines aboard the ships of the USS Enterprise carrier battle group. Enterprise is the first U.S. aircraft carrier to deploy since the end of major military operations in Iraq.

They serve as a highly visible deterrent to would-be aggressors, and are equipped with the most versatile and powerful weapons and aircraft available.
