LEGACY WEEK

The USS Midway Museum’s “Legacy Week” is the heart and soul of Memorial Day commemoration in San Diego. As the USS Midway Museum is still closed to the public, this year we are offering you our most iconic activities in a virtual format. From a live stream Memorial Day commemoration, to an interactive virtual Remembrance Wall, to a Facebook Live introducing you to expert aviators –  each element of Midway’s Legacy Week commemoration is designed to honor and remember our heroes and celebrate our military heritage.

National Moment of Remembrance May 25 at 3 pm

National Moment of Remembrance – May 25 at 3 pm 
Established into law by Congress in 2000, the National Moment of Remembrance is when Americans pause and observe a moment of silence at 3 pm on Memorial Day to honor those who have fallen while serving in the U.S. military.

As noted by the National Moment of Remembrance Act, “Congress called on the people of the United States, in a symbolic act of unity, to observe a National Moment of Remembrance to honor the men and women of the United States who died in the pursuit of freedom and peace.”

Wherever you are, be sure to take a pause  to remember those that have paid the ultimate sacrifice while in uniform.

More details to come.
