In honor of the anniversary of Operation Frequent Wind, Midway’s Research Library team is proud to share a pop-up exhibit viewable on April 30 from 10 am – 4 pm in Midway’s Hangar deck.

Stop by to view a photo slideshow from one of the milestone moments aboard Midway during her active service, browse memorabilia such as a hard-copy of the special Midway Spectrum newsletter/booklet from OFW and hard-copy cruise books of Midway, USS Okinawa, and USS Hancock during this time that show various pictures of the evacuees and associated activities aboard each ship. Transport back to 1975 with our library team.

Learn more about Operation Frequent Wind from Midway’s Ship Historian in his blog, “Karl’s Korner”:
