USS Midway, A City at Sea (Support Services)

Young sailors went to sea aboard the USS Midway for six to ten months at a time. How did the ship provide for their comfort and welfare during these long voyages? Join Rudy as he explores the City at Sea that met the needs of its crew with everything from the day-to-day necessities like laundry services to soft ice cream and the latest movies.

Daily Life Aboard The USS Midway (Berthing & Feeding)

The two most-asked questions by visitors aboard the USS Midway are “Where did they sleep?” and “What did they eat?” Join Rudy as he looks at living conditions aboard the carrier for the 4,500 young men who served aboard. He’ll take you from the Admiral’s quarters to the berth of the lowest seaman, then from a galley preparing 2,500 solid meals four times a day, to the Captain’s pantry where a chef prepares meals for one.
