We would like to acknowledge the Science Fiction Coalition for interacting with guests, and our very own Ship Historian, Karl Zingheim, for "hulking" out! Hopefully Karl will return to his normal self by Monday!

Thanks to all who attended this family fun event!

Commemorating and honoring all Purple Heart recipients today & always. #PurpleHeartDay 🇺🇸

Please see the link below to an article in this month’s issue of San Diego Veterans Magazine on two of our American hero Docents – Doc Berns and Doc Werner. Both were corpsman with Marine units in Vietnam and received Purple Hearts for wounds sustained while saving the lives of their Marine comrades during combat. We are thankful for their service and sacrifice. 🇺🇸

Today we celebrate the life of a true American Hero - Stu Hedley. A Pearl Harbor survivor, Stu passed away at the age of 99.

He narrowly escaped death when his battleship, the USS West Virginia, was hit by torpedoes and bombs during the Japanese surprise attack on Dec. 7, 1941. For the last 80 years, he was committed to making sure we remembered the courage of all of his fellow sailors, Marines, soldiers and airman who were at Pearl Harbor that day.

Stu was a dear friend of the Midway Museum and was also a recipient of the 2015 Midway American Patriot Award. He did not consider himself a hero, but he was. Stu will be greatly missed. 🇺🇸

Check out this historic fact from 75 years ago today! 👇🏽

21 July 1946, 75 years ago today: McDonnell XFD-1 Phantom jet fighter piloted by LCDR Jim Davidson lands on the Midway-class aircraft carrier USS Franklin D. Roosevelt (CVB-42) during initial carrier trials for this aircraft type, making it the first landing of a pure jet fighter on an American aircraft carrier and thus the beginning of the jet age for U.S. Naval Aviation.

Flag Day is a day to celebrate the adoption of our flag of the United States of America, which took place on June 14, 1777.

This patriotic emblem is engrained in the fabric of our nation and present in many of our homes, places of work, and in our communities. Today and always, may we gaze at those stars and stripes with pride.

Our Story

Midway Family!

Thank you for helping us preserve the historic USS Midway and the legacy of those who serve, inspire and educate future generations, and entertain our museum guests!

The USS Midway was commissioned as the largest warship in the world in 1945. Following, Midway’s adventures took her and her crew through historic moments such as Operation Frostbite (1946), Operation Sandy (1947), the Vietnam War, Operation Frequent Wind and the Evacuation of Saigon (1975), Operation Desert Storm (1991), and the rescue after the Mt. Pinatubo eruption. The USS Midway was decommissioned in 1992, and 12 years later in 2004 - was opened as the USS Midway Museum in San Diego, CA.

Years and millions of visitors later, we are so honored to preserve the legacy of the USS Midway and her crew.

VETERAN'S/SHIPMATE DAY, RE: USS MIDWAY MUSEUM Top of the day to you all! Hope you’re having a great Navy day! In case you don’t know me, and, to refresh your memory, I am Garry B. Coston, retired U.S. Navy Veteran (1974-1994) who served on the USS Franklin D. Roosevelt. I am also the sole Admin for the USS Franklin D. Roosevelt Face Book page, and also one of the Admins for the Midway Class Carrier, 3 Sisters Face Book page I am also a member of the USS Midway Face Book page and was cruising through it today, and we were all throwing posts out on a thread entitled, “WHO WOULD GO TO SEA ON THE MIDWAY?” One guy said, “I would in a heartbeat (me paraphrasing), but this is what he said: “If it could move I would go! Otherwise spending the night on it in S.D. would be cool!” I know the Midway Museum IS a Museum; but I started thinking, how cool it would be for maybe once a month, or whatever, to have a Veteran’s day, where we, or they get to spend 24 hours (for a donation fee), on the Midway, get to sleep in the racks, eat from the galley (if operable), see a movie on the hangar deck, and just mill around here and there. I know, certain areas and things would have to be changed, built, or updated to accommodate such an idea or day; and again, there could be a charge. And I’ll bet you you would get a rousing response from it. This is just a thought. It could be another headache for you guys. It all entails, after review and discussion, the feasibility of a “Veteran’s and Crew Members Day” on the USS MIDWAY. I certainly would pay for such a thing. Don’t know whether the guys would go for a male only deal, or have wives with them (no quarters for females at present is there?)…if not, would have to also set that up. I would bet many of the guys would want a Shipmate Only thing or day in this regard. Think about it, and tell me (us) what you think. Feel free to use the MIDWAY CLASS CARRIERS, 3 SISTERS Face Book page and forum to generate a feel or interest of such a thing. You have almost 3 thousand Sailors there, and of course, the USS MIDWAY Face Book page and forum which has over 5 thousand members. I will await a response. Thank you for the super great job you all are doing with the MIDWAY Museum, and especially how you are extremely accommodating to the ROSIE and AGELESS WARRIOR Sailors whose ships have been dismantled and the hulls no longer with us. Hope to hear from you soon. GARRY B. COSTON, YNC(AW), USN U.S. NAVY 1974-1994 USS FRANKLIN D. ROOSEVELT 1975 CRUISE

Today is a day of remembrance for three of my brothers lost 31 years ago aboard USS Midway. Johnson, Kilgore, and Viera. May they RIP and may we always live our lives in celebration of the tomorrows they gave up for our freedoms.
