Would a ship be sent on deployment when it's scheduled to be decommissioned within a year?

USS Ticonderoga to Make Final Deployment Before Decommissioning
Thanks. I was just wondering why the government would send a nuclear carrier to the gulf when it was scheduled to be decommissioned within a year. I kind of felt that the government would send one of the convectional warfare class ships but not a nuclear carrier. But I wasn't in the navy so I didn't know.
Remember the Maine
Another ship being sent, due to be de-commissioned

What? Are you trying to suggest something?
Stranger things have happened.
Moi? watch and shoot
Remember the Maine is suggesting one thing. Could you clarify what you meant by
Remember the Maine.
It's obvious, think about it. The ship is due to be decommissioned, if it is sunk, it's no loss.
Except for the dead of course.
It's a nuclear aircraft carrier, not what I would say it's no lose.
However, the government would save money because the cost to decommission a nuclear ship is very expensive.
