The ship is named after Admiral Chester Nimitz, who commanded the American fleet in the Pacific Ocean during the Second World War. The ship's construction, generally the second nuclear-powered aircraft in the US Navy, was commenced on June 22, 1968, at the Newport News Shipbuilding Shipyard in Newport News. Baptism and launching occurred on May 13, 1972, and served on May 3, 1975, at Naval Station Norfolk (Virginia). Ordered and built as an offshore aircraft carrier with the designation CVAN-68, the change to a multi-purpose aircraft carrier named CVN-68 occurred on June 30, 1975. Since 2012 its home port is the Naval Station Everett base in Everett, Washington.
After shutting down the USS Enterprise at the end of 2012, the oldest US aircraft carrier is active.
