We are excited to be working with the USS Midway Association on their 2016 reunion in Pensacola.  The USS Midway Museum in San Diego is one of the "must see" attractions there.  We toured it last summer and were "wowed" by the size and history of the ship.  The Midway was commissioned a week after the end of WWII and was the largest ship in the world until 1955 as well as the first aircraft carrier to be too big to transit the Panama Canal.  It operated an unprecendented 47 years where it saw...
