"The aircraft carrier USS Nimitz (CVN 68) and embarked Carrier Air Wing (CVW) 11 successfully completed their Blue Water Certification, April 13, while underway for Composite Training Unit Exercise (COMPTUEX). Blue Water Certification is one of the final qualifications a carrier and associated air wing must go through before being certified for deployment."

It would take CVN-68 about a week to travel from CONUS to a station in the East Sea.
