BREMERTON, Wash. — The Navy says the carrier Stennis stopped in Singapore on Monday for a port visit on its way home to Bremerton.

The Stennis has been operating in and around the Arabian Gulf the past five months, mostly providing air support to allied troops on the ground in Afghanistan.

Planes flew about 1,200 sorties from the Stennis with more than 7,400 flight hours.

The Stennis has been replaced by the Eisenhower.

The Stennis departed Bremerton Aug. 27 on a quick turnaround after arriving in March 2012 from a seven-month deployment to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The Kitsap Sun reported that the Stennis will likely stop in Hawaii then head to San Diego to drop off its air wing. It is expected at Naval Base Kitsap-Bremerton in early May.
