A wreath will be placed at the World War II kiosk located on the New Mexico Veterans’ Memorial Grounds on 4 June to commemorate the United States Navy’s “Battle of Midway” on 4 June 1942.
Many military historians believe that the Navy victory turned the tide for supremacy of the seas in the Pacific in America’s favor. Franklin D. Roosevelt was President.
The National Colors and the Navy Service Flag will be posted. There will be no ceremony.
