About the Commemoration

From the shores of Midway Atoll on June 5, 2017, the world will honor the veterans of the Battle of Midway that took place seventy five years ago.

There will be a small on-island ceremony for the veterans and other special guests, and this ceremony will be livestreamed to audiences at events around the country and online. The livestreamed event is aimed to educate and inspire the public about the history and importance of the Battle of Midway, what it means today, and what it means for the future.

Six official events are planned, and the livestream will be available right here on this website.
