USS Midway Museum


Patriots in American history were hailed as freedom fighters. We owe so much to their foresight and tenacity. Our Midway Patriots are those who have included the USS Midway Museum in their estate plans and by doing so, are fighters for preserving Midway and supporting our vision to become America’s Living Symbol of Freedom. Funds from estate gifts help to build our endowment to ensure Midway Magic endures long into the future.

The dedication and generosity of our Patriot Society members is unparalleled.
