70th Battle of Midway Anniversary Ceremony

Hello everyone.

I just received some potentially great news. The information is below.

==========

The U.S. Navy is commemorating the historic Battle of Midway on June 4 on Midway Atoll and has room for a few civilians who are eligible to fly on military aircraft and who have a connection to the battle or Midway Atoll. There is no cost to the traveler for the flight, only for meals that day.

Please be advised that nearly 3 million birds live on Midway - now a national wildlife refuge - so flights must arrive and depart in darkness to maximize the safety of the aircraft. Therefore, the flight will depart Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam in the middle of night in order to arrive before sunrise, then depart Midway around 8:45 p.m.

There will be an hour-long ceremony and wreath laying in the morning, followed by an opportunity to visit historic sites of the Battle of Midway National Memorial. Those with a connection to the battle or Midway Atoll may be called on to participate in the ceremony or other official events on Midway.

Midway Atoll - about 1,250 miles northwest of Honolulu - is an unorganized, unincorporated territory of the United States, and is the only atoll/island in the Hawaiian archipelago not part of the State of Hawaii. Designated the Battle of Midway National Memorial on September 13, 2000, Midway Atoll National Wildlife Refuge is administered by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) on behalf of the American people. As such, it is part of the Papahanaumokuakea Marine National Monument and a truly unique and fragile ecosystem with rules that help protect you and wildlife must be followed while on Midway.

I lived on sand island as my time on Midway was a short year out of my life. Right now the island made me sick to see it very run down . I was there 1963-1964
