Midway American Patriot Award Gala


The 10th annual Midway American Patriot Award Gala took place aboard the USS Midway Museum Sept. 1. 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 for their “dedication and service” to this country.

Event proceeds benefit the “No Child Left Ashore” scholarship fund aboard Midway. These scholarships benefit tens of thousands of students annually from under-served San Diego County schools to study science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) aboard Midway. For more information, visit
