WASHINGTON (NNS) -- The Navy cancelled the fiscal year '05 Complex Overhaul (COH) for USS John F. Kennedy (CV 67) April 1. Resulting from this decision, the homeport shift from Mayport, Fla., to Norfolk, Va., will not occur.

Kennedy's Complex Overhaul (COH) was estimated to take more than 15 months. Given the requirement to present a balanced program and under the current fiscal environment, Navy leadership feels the decision to cancel the COH will free resources for other priorities.

The final decision on the ship's decommissioning and inactivation status is still pending.
