EVERETT, Wash. (AP) - The aircraft carrier USS Nimitz is on its way home to Puget Sound.

It left the Mediterranean late last week through the Suez Canal and into the Red Sea. The Nimitz is expected to be back at its home port at Everett before Christmas.

It deployed in March to the area that includes the Red and Arabian seas and part of the Indian Ocean.
