USS Midway Legacy Week is the heart and soul of Memorial Day commemoration in San Diego. The lineup of activities range from a Wreath Memorial ceremony, benefit concert, family activities, blood drive, interactive exhibits and more. Designed to honor and remember our heroes, each element of Midway’s Legacy Week commemoration is to celebrate our military heritage. All the events offer the community an affordable and inspiring way to kick off summer in San Diego on the USS Midway, one of the most iconic museums in the world.
A few of our favorite events happening are:
The Remembrance Wall. This wall will be on display from May 26-28 to honor fallen military heroes and viewable online. A place where you will be able to submit your photo with a short message to publicly honor the legacy of those courageous individuals who made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedoms.
Bring the whole family to attend a moving Wreath Ceremony on the USS Midway flight deck. Inspire patriotism and appreciation for those who serve our nation and have made the ultimate sacrifice. May 26th.
