"Beyond The Call Of Duty" Follow-up

In this post I wrote about the Memorial Day weekend event hosted by the USS Midway Museum. On Saturday, May 24 there was a black tie dinner honoring seven living World War II era Medal of Honor recipients. “Beyond the Call of Duty” was a joint effort of the USS Midway Museum and The National WWII Museum in New Orleans.

Here are some pics that Scott McGaugh of the Midway Museum was kind enough to forward to me.

BZ to Scott and everyone at the Midway Museum and the National World War II Museum on pulling together this event.


Scott also has another surprise up his sleeve.

See the Declaration of Independence on the USS Midway! One-Day exhibit of an original copy from 1776 on July 4, day and night!!!
