Navy officials say the USS Enterprise is ready to head back to Norfolk.
The aircraft carrier deployed June third to undergo war training off the coast of Morocco, practicing communicating with foreign ships, testing its navigation skills and refining bombing techniques. The Enterprise's "opponent" is being played by the carrier USS Harry S. Truman.
Navy officials say the Enterprise should arrive back at the Norfolk Naval Station by the end of the month.
