Latest Visit To USS Midway Museum

Visited the USS Midway Museum with Rick and Darcel Valenta today; 26 August 2018. Great friends that enjoyed the experience with me tell stories about my time aboard so many years ago during my first enlistment. This visit was most rewarding when I learned that my old work center AIMD IM-3 Division W/C 650 has been converted into a learning center just below the Flight Deck. I was able to have one of the Ship’s Safety Officers provide us a quick tour of this recently opened space just below the fight deck and overhanging the bay. I stopped at the information area as we left the the ship and have contact information for the head of Safety. I will try to arrange for a more complete tour of my old work center in the future. The best part was seeing the passageway that I had to clean often that spanned from Port to Starboard on the 03 Deck. It is the site of the forward expansion joint.
