MVA's 2021 reunion, which we are calling "MVA Lite," because we expect fewer Midway veterans and guests to attend due to COVID precautions, will be held August 21 thru August 24, 2021 in San Diego. Our reunion hotel will be the Wyndham San Diego Bayside, within easy walking distance to and from the USS Midway Museum. Wyndham has served as our "home port" for reunions for many years.
The reunion registration form and reunion program, soon to be completed and provided as a link in this write-up, will carry the full slate of tours and outings for this reunion. Due to the COVID pandemic, we expect have fewer attendees at this reunion, but we expect to have more fun than ever!
For the health and safety of all we are asking those who attend to be fully COVID vaccinated.
Stay tuned to this website for the latest information on MVA’s "MVA Lite" reunion.
