USS Midway

While visiting San Diego, we took a self guided tour of the USS Midway.  We thoroughly enjoyed the tour.  What a massive vessel.  When you start your tour, you are given earphones and a handheld remote.  The exhibits are numbered and you punch the number on the handheld to listen to an explanation of the exhibit.  Very well done!

The USS Midway was commissioned in September 1945 and was decommissioned in April 1992.  USS Midway was America's longest serving aircraft carrier.  Approximately 200,000 sailors served aboard this carrier.

Veteran giving a talk on the aircraft.

Enlisted men's quarters.

I highly recommend seeing this museum if you are ever in San Diego!
