USS Midway: Surprises, Milestones & Disasters
The USS Midway, America’s longest-serving aircraft carrier, had its share of hair-raising missions, pranks, heartbreaking disasters, and remarkable accomplishments. Shared by about 150,000 sailors whose average age was only 19, “Midway Magic” became famous throughout the Navy.
Captain Bradt’s USN (ret.) illustrious career spanned over three decades and included Staff Tours at the Naval Academy and Naval Staff College, serving aboard the USS Independence, and four combat Command Tours.
It is essential that we have an accurate headcount for the venue. Please remember to RSVP and let us know if your plans change. Thank you!
