Dozens paid tribute to honor the legacy and sacrifice of the more than 300,000 lives lost in World War II, during the Veteran’s Wreath Remembrance Ceremony held aboard the USS Midway.
The event, hosted by the USS Midway Museum, kicked-off the Midway Legacy Week held May 23 to 25.
The museum, housed on the former USS Midway, offers visitors a chance to come aboard the decommissioned aircraft carrier and view various activities, which range from static displays and aircraft restoration to live recordings of veteran oral histories.
World War II veterans attended the event and also participated in the wreath ceremony.
