I just read the following in this ABC News article.
U.S. military officials told ABCNEWS that USS Kitty Hawk and the USS Constellation aircraft carriers would leave the Persian Gulf later this week and make their way to their home bases.
It also appeared at CNN.com. It better be true or the media will be on the run from me in short order. (Just in case you're wondering, my brother sailed over on the USS Boxer, which is part of the Constellation's battle group.)
