“True heroism is remarkably sober, very undramatic. It is not the urge to surpass all others at whatever cost, but the urge to serve others at whatever cost.”

— Arthur Ashe

When you learn about a job opportunity in the defense sector, such as a position that comes open with your company, you send me the title, organization, location, and a brief description; link; or contact information, and I’ll share. This is a cooperative network. That means everyone’s participation is required to provide job opportunities to share.

*** Battle of Midway Commemoration Dinner

Wednesday, 3 June 2009

Army Navy Country Club

Reception 1830

Dinner 1900

This year marks the 67th Anniversary of the Battle of Midway. On June 4th 1942, a vastly outnumbered and outgunned U.S. Fleet defeated the finest of the Imperial Japanese Navy in the waters off a small Pacific Atoll named Midway. Their daring combination of intelligence, tactics, courage and sacrifice forever changed the course of the war and world history.

In 1999 then Chief of Naval Operations Adm. Jay L. Johnson announced that beginning with the 2000 observance, June 4 would become as significant as Oct. 13 — the Navy's birthday. “Twice a year, we will pause as a Navy to reflect upon our proud heritage and to build in all hands a renewed awareness of our tradition and history,” Johnson said.

For the past several years the Battle of Midway has been commemorated in the month of June in Washington DC. This year the Battle of Midway Commemoration is being sponsored by a number of Associations and Foundations including Association of Naval Aviation, Naval Historical Foundation, Naval Order of the United States, The Navy League of the United States, The United States Navy Memorial Foundation, Surface Navy Association, and the Tailhook Association.

For more information and to register for the dinner please visit http://www.midwaycommemoration.org

One other event is being planned to commemorate the Battle of Midway in the DC Area. The Naval District Washington will host a wreath laying ceremony at 1100 on 4 June at the Navy Memorial, located at 701 Pennsylvania Avenue NW in Washington DC. Chief of Naval Operation ADM Gary Roughead has issued a NAVADMIN message about the Midway commemorations here and around the country. A link to this can be found on the website at http://www.midwaycommemoration.org
