Memorial Day celebration

Last Monday we celebrated Memorial Day out here on Midway Atoll with a nice ceremony at the Navy Memorial.  The current Refuge Manager is also a Coast Guard Reserve Commander, so he and I dressed up in our military duds for the occasion.
Later this week is a ceremony to recognize the Battle of Midway [June 4-7, 1942]  The largest naval battle in history and the turning point for the Japanese in WWII.
