The Battle of Midway was an epic clash between the U.S. Navy and the Imperial Japanese Navy that played out six months after the attack on Pearl Harbor. The U.S. Navy’s decisive victory in the air-sea battle (June 3-6, 1942) and its successful defense of the major base located at Midway Island dashed Japan’s hopes of neutralizing the United States as a naval power and effectively turned the tide of World War II in the Pacific (HISTORY.COM).
The United States Navy Memorial’s mission is to Honor, Recognize, and Celebrate the men and women of the Sea Services, past, present, and future; and Inform the public about their service. On June 4th, 2021 they recognized the Battle of the Midway held in the heart of D.C. at the Navy Memorial Plaza.
The Association of the United States Navy was a special guest of the event representing AUSN members and all those serving in our maritime services.
