"in port" would be USNS Norfolk.
The Navy sends ships to "show the flag" at inlets like the Chesapeake and New York Harbor at times like this to help give people there courage. if a Carrier then needs to, it can launch sorties from there also, to provide air cover, or to react quickly to another threat, even though the planes would probably not return to the carrier afterwards.
like I said, kid, you need to get a life, and your daddy probably needs to give you a spanking too and take away your PC for awhile, and it would be very nice if you would get lost.
