We are proud to announce that the September 11-13, 2017, USS Midway reunion hosted by the USS Midway Veterans Association (MVA), in San Diego, was a great success, with the grand banquet on the flight deck of the USS Midway surpassing all expectations. We honored America’s POWs and MIAs, our commissioning crew plankowners and WWII veterans, and enjoyed a great keynote address by RADM Mac McLaughlin, USN (Ret.), president and CEO of the USS Midway Museum. The tours and events for the three days were entertaining and well received, and about two dozen Midway veterans discovered the MVA for the first time and joined our ranks. Plans were announced to hold a Midway-Class reunion in 2019, bringing together the veterans from all three ships in the class: Midway, Coral Sea and FDR. The focal point of this reunion will be the USS Midway Museum. Stay tuned for more information on the 2019 Midway class reunion.
