Daytime Military Events & Ceremonies

The Midway is proud to support our servicemen and women and welcome all military branches aboard to celebrate and commemorate a milestone. The Midway accommodates over 500 military ceremonies and events each year. Military ceremonies are held on the Flight Deck, Monday-Saturday between 0800-1300.
