Attention Midway Veterans: All Hands on Deck for the 2017 MVA Reunion!
We are proud to announce that the next reunion of the USS Midway Veterans Association (MVA) is set for September 11-13, 2017 (Monday through Wednesday), in San Diego. We recommend that you arrive 1 day early (Sunday, September 10), however, so that you can register early and take in the sites and be ready to go bright and early on Monday. The grand banquet will be held on the flight deck of the USS Midway Museum (the evening of Wednesday, Sept. 13th). All Midway veterans, family members and friends are invited to attend to help us honor America’s POWs and MIAs, and our ship. You do not have to be an MVA member to attend. Our reunion hotel, Wyndham San Diego Bayside (WSDB), is close by the ship and downtown shopping, dining and entertainment. Click here to reserve your room at the special reunion rate of $153/night (rate is good for 3 days before and after the reunion, providing the hotel has rooms available). You can also make your reservation by phone at 1-619-232-3861 between 8:30 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. PT; ask for in-house reservations and tell them you’re with the USS Midway reunion.
We are Midway veterans who are bound by a common love for our ship and a sense of duty that still burns strong to this day.
The USS Midway Veterans Association (MVA) is open to all Navy and Marine Corps veterans who served aboard the USS Midway (CV-41) from 1945 to 1992. We invite you to join our ranks regardless of the department or air-wing affiliation you were part of while on Midway, for we are a shipwide association. Today our ship, one of the premier warships of the 20th century, serves as the USS Midway Museum, in San Diego, California. She is the most popular museum ship in the country, and most of our reunions center around her. Find the link to our application to join the MVA, below.
