Patriot Award gala held aboard the Midway


The 10th annual Midway American Patriot Award Gala was hosted aboard the USS Midway Museum, Sept. 1, 2016. The Midway American Patriot Award honors extraordinary individuals who exemplify the finest of American ideals, recognizing individual acts as well as cumulative lifetime achievement. This year’s honorees were Senators Bob and Elizabeth Dole. Event proceeds benefit the “No Child Left Ashore” scholarship fund, which benefit tens of thousands of students annually from under-served San Diego County schools to study science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) aboard Midway.
