Battle of Midway 60th Anniversary

I was honored to be able to witness the 60th aniversary ceremony of the Battle of Midway at Midway Island, or Atoll as you prefer.

Midway Atoll National Wildlife Refuge

Since the Navy has left Midway has become a wildlife refuge.

Midway is also a National Memorial to the men that lost their lives during the Battle of Midway that took place June of 1942.

Pros and Cons

  • In a nutshell:Paradise just East of tomorrow.
