Today is the 67th anniversary of the turning of the tide in the Pacific Theater in WWII. For the first 6 months of the war, the Japanese had their way in almost every battle. They seemed almost unstoppable. They weren’t.
We’re an Army blog, but the son of a Naval Aviator, and we grew up not just knowing about Midway, but knowing veterans of Midway. We’ll leave it to the huge collection of excellent Naval bloggers to tell the story. Today is their day. Hats off to the heroes of one of the most desparate naval battles of all time.
