The USS Juneau sets sail Wednesday out of Gastineau Channel. The crew pulled up anchor in the morning, ending a four-day visit in honor of the coming 50th anniversary of statehood. The "Mighty J," as the U.S. Navy vessel is affectionately known by its crew, is on its final voyage to San Diego, where it will be decommissioned.
