Held LIVE at the Battle of Midway National Memorial on June 7, 2023, the Friends of Midway Atoll hosted a virtual gathering to commemorate the 81st Anniversary of the Battle of Midway. Through the magic of new Starlink capabilities we were able to include living Battle of Midway veterans and their family members.
We’re honored to share a recording of the event here:
Midway residents, including Seabird Protection Project volunteers, paid tribute to those who never came home and—stick around for the second half of the video—were able to personally engage with the veterans via Zoom.
Mahalo to Jon Brack for the photos shared in the slideshow above!
A big shout to Rear Admiral Samuel Cox Director of the Navy History and Heritage Command who called in from an airport gate, the International Midway Memorial Foundation, Starlink through Island Conservation, Defense Based Services, Inc., and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
Lastly, to the many friends of Midway, near and far, it was your donations to the Friends of Midway Atoll that made this possible.
