Commemorate the 78th anniversary of the Battle of Midway by revisiting one of the pivotal moments in United States history during a special online program at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, June 4.
On June 4, 1942, the U.S. Navy and the Imperial Japanese Navy fought one of the key battles of World War II near Midway Island. The result would decide the fate of the war in the Pacific. Dr. John Foster, will tell the story of the battle and of the incredible heroism of the sailors and naval aviators who achieved victory that day.
