Rear Admiral Michael S. White, commander of the Nimitz Strike Group, gets a goodbye kiss from his wife Marietta White of Lake Stevens before the USS Nimitz deployed from Naval Station Everett Saturday March 30, 2013. She has been through ten deployments now, and said it was easier when their children, who are all grown now, were younger and at home. "Now I'm all alone again, it's a little bit different," she said.
